City's aquatic weed management strategy up for discussion

Making sure you see less green in the waters of Sturgeon Bay is the goal of the aquatic weed management plan to be discussed at the Sturgeon Bay Joint Parks and Recreation Committee/Board meeting on Wednesday evening.

 

The city marked approximately 116 acres on either side of the bay, stretching from near Strawberry Creek estates to Centerpointe Marina, to be harvested. An offload site would be set up near Madelyn Marina.

 

In August, concerned residents asked the city during a Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting to search for better and more comprehensive ways to remove the aquatic plants. Engineering Technician Brian Spetz said at the meeting that the City of Sturgeon Bay has three operating harvesters that collected 357 loads of weeds up to that point, compared to 371 total loads in 2021. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources restrictions on harvesting from the bay limit the areas and how low the harvesters can cut in the Sturgeon Bay Channel. 

 

Mary Gansberg from the DNR will be a part of the discussion when it takes place inside the council chambers at 5:30 p.m.
