Little Lake restoration playing waiting game

The Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay is trying to receive grants to continue the restoration of Little Lake. Rotary Club Member Roger Anderson says the city of Sturgeon Bay applied for grants in 2018 but was rejected. The restoration of Little Lake needs at least $1.5 million to remove the soft sediment according to the Sturgeon Bay Rotary's website. Ideally $3.5 to $4 million is needed to remove the soft and hard sediment to deepen the lake and improve the fish habitat. Anderson says the new city council is not as supportive of the restoration as the old one.



Little Lake had gotten smaller over the years due to two nearby sawmills dumping into the lake. The restoration of the lake started back in 2008.
