Walworth County Lake Protection Program - 
In the Fall of 1999, Walworth County was awarded a $200,000 State WDNR Lake Protection Grant to carry-out a 5-year Lake Protection Program for Walworth County’s 36 lakes. This is the first County-wide comprehensive lake protection program funded in the state of Wisconsin to assist lake residents and lake management organizations. With this state-supported grant, the Walworth County Land Conservation was given the unique opportunity to hire a full-time natural resource professional dedicated to assist lake residents and lake management organizations protect water quality, improve recreational use and establish near shore habitat on lakes within Walworth County and the Fox River Basin.

Provided is information and education for lake residents, schools and concerned citizens on several topics:

Walworth County Lakes Association
