Grant moves Dunes Lake restoration forward

Restoration of Dunes Lake in the Town of Sevastopol will be half-way to completion with help from a Wisconsin Coastal Management Program grant.  Some restoration work on the 48-acre lake has already been completed. The $100,000 grant will fund Phase II of dredging needed to help restore waterfowl and fish habitat.  Greg Coulthurst, with the Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department, says the grant will allow them to build on past successes.



Coulthurst says the total cost of restoring Dunes Lake is expected to run about $1.2-million.  The lake is home to threatened or endangered bird species like the osprey, the Caspian tern and the grey egret.
