Lakeshore question

Recommended Posts

npsmokefan

We are looking at buying some lakeshore in this area and one of the lots we are looking at has some reeds out in front of it. My question is, Can you remove some of the reeds near shore to put a dock in and have some swimming area. If so, what can you do to remove them. I'm not talking removing a lot, just enough to have some usable shoreline. Does the dnr allow you to remove reeds. Any information would be appreiated.

Thanks

I believe most lakes in the area, the DNR allows up to 40 feet cleared for a dock/beach area. I don't know the exact rules when it comes to how the reeds can be removed, but I don't believe you can use anything on them to kill them, they must be hand pulled from what I remember. Best of luck and enjoy the property!

You need to talk to Leslie George with the DNR in Glenwood. She does the permiting for that. Shes very busy this time of year so be patient but Im sure shed be happy to talk to you over the phone to tell you what to expect. wink.gif

Dont assume too much.... they are getting more and more strict on messing with lake vegetation, habitat, etc.

From Do. Co. Land and resource.

Limited clearing of vegetation may be allowed for 25 feet or of 25 percent of shoreline whichever is less.

I don't think they will allow any type of chemicals to remove. Cutting and raking is what I have seen people mainly do to open up their lots.

Slimandgrizzly is right - you absolutely DO need to contact the area's DNR aquatic plant management specialist in these situations, no matter where or what lake you're talking about...even little 'private' (no public access) lakes. You can find out who that specialist is by contacting the Area Fisheries office. There are things you can remove without a permit, but it is very species and area specific...call the aquatic plant management specialists, it's definitely not worth the ticket/fine/restoration hassle.
