Environmental Planning & Aquatic Invasive Species Coordination for the Winnebago Pool Lakes

Why Todd Loves the Lake

The love the diversity and eco-regions of the Lake. I enjoy noticing the slight changes as you travel from the Lake’s northern shorelines to the southern shoreline. There is nothing better than sailing up a Door County, WI tributary in search of a steelhead in spring.

Other Lake Projects Todd is Involved With

East Central is in the process of completing (phase I) of a groundwater recharge modeling project throughout East Central's Region. This modeling will help make better land use decisions in the future that will help protect the region's surface water recharge and groundwater resources. East Central also has a three-year grant from the WDNR to be the West Winnebago Pool Lakes Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Coordinator to stop the spread of AIS throughout Wisconsin.
