The first phase for restoring Little Lake in Sturgeon Bay has been completed but no decisions regarding the dredging of the lake have been made. According to the Sturgeon Bay Rotary’s website, the next phase of the project proposes a channel being dug to connect the lake to the bay. The channel will let dredging equipment remove soft and hard sediment to deepen and improve the fish habitat in the lake. Rotary Member of the Environmental Protection Committee Roger Anderson says the project idea sparked from community members complaining about the poor condition of the lake.
Anderson says the Rotary Club is patiently waiting to move onto the next restoration phase. The Rotary Club dedicated their time to restoring the lake including collecting $100,000 in funds for the project.
