Water Quality and Your Watershed

Thursday, February 20, 2020

Unsure of what a watershed is? Want to get an update on how the City has been working to protect our beautiful Oconomowoc River and area lakes? In 2014 the City of Oconomowoc embarked on a brand-new program called the Oconomowoc Watershed Protection Program (OWPP) to address water quality in the entire Oconomowoc River Watershed. The watershed is 49 miles long with its headwaters near the Village of Slinger. 17 lakes and 131 square miles of land drain into the Oconomowoc River, which eventually empties into the Rock River in the Town of Ixonia. As the watershed grows in uses and population, more and more pressures are placed on this pristine surface water system. Come and enjoy a presentation by OWPP managers and learn of the great accomplishments made in the past five years. Also, learn how you can help in this effort by volunteering or just practicing good land and water stewardship.
