For the past four years state and local conservation officials have been looking into why Dunes Lake is aging so quickly. The technical term for it is eutrophication.
The study is now moving from the science-based investigative phase into the public planning phase and that will include a public information meeting.
The meeting, hosted by the Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department, is set for Monday, August 13 at 6 p.m. at the Sevastopol Town Hall, 4528 State Hwy 57, Sturgeon Bay.
SWCD staff will discuss their findings and talk about future recommendations to restore the lake to a higher quality public water body.
