The final draft of the first ever Spider Chain of Lakes Comprehensive Lake Management Plan was forwarded to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in early December. The plan has a 10-year horizon and addresses lake water quality, habitat, aquatic invasive species prevention, and the social framework to support the long-term health of the lakes. The Spider Chain of Lakes includes Clear Lake, Fawn Lake, North Lake and Big and Little Spider Lake in Sawyer County. If approved by the WDNR, the plan will be implemented from the Spring of 2022 through 2032.
With this CLMP, SCLA joins a growing list of Wisconsin lake associations and lake districts that are planning for the future in cooperation with the Wisconsin DNR and local agencies such as its partners in Sawyer County.
After the "Public Comment" period ended on November 30, 2021, the final draft was forwarded to the WDNR; final approval is expected in February 2022. A copy of the plan that was submitted is available on this website, along with additional information on the background and funding.
