This is the latest info on the Dam Reconstruction
The construction documents are now under the Wisconsin Department
of Administrations final review. The Army Corp of Engineers are reviewing
the project permit. Estimated project bidding time is in January and
February with a possible spring start.
The Sheriff Dept has issued an emergency NO WAKE order
for Puckaway and the Fox River until further notice.
Water levels continue to drop about 6” per week. It will still take
many weeks before we see anything near normal
The boards went on the dam this morning Saturday July 28
There will not be a Drawdown on Puckaway this year.
Water levels were too high on June 15.
The annual meeting was Saturday June 2. The annual budget
for 2019 was approved. A new commissioner was elected, Keith
Barnes for a three year term. Kurt McCulloch is the new chairman.
There was a good turnout for the meeting, estimated at 140 members.
The new Lake Puckaway Comprehensive Management Plan is
now on this web site under Photos.
May 8 Randy and Rich moved the Tern Rafts out for the summer
Good job guys.
Ice went out on Puckaway on April 3
The Hatchery is now completed for the year. Guys are starting
to clean up and put things away for next year.
If any shoreline property owner has interest in doing something
with their shoreline such as riprapping or dredging this would
be the person to contact for permits.
