DELAVAN LAKE WATERSHED MAP
The Delavan Lake Watershed was formed nearly 15,000 years ago when glacial ice retreated leaving its melt waters to sculpt the landforms we see today. The amount of land that contributes water to Delavan Lake is astonishing in its size. For every acre of lake water there is 13 times more land.More
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
Warmer temperatures and spring rains mean that our lawns are growing quickly and this means managing grass clippings, weeds and fertilizing.
Learn how the way you manage your lawn can be a threat to water quality. Your everyday actions can reduce pollution in our waters and protect our natural resources.
WHAT IS A WATERSHED?
Watersheds are places in the landscape where all rain and snow that falls on the land drains to the same low spot. The water is "shed" from the land as it flows over parking lots, across farm fields, along roadsides and down boat launches.
Our neighbors to the northwest in Jefferson County are realizing the rewards of restoring wetlands within their watersheds. Click here to see a video of rare shorebirds feeding in a wetland restored last year.More
