Bring Back Peaceful Lake Wisconsin

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


Lake Wisconsin, a segment of the Wisconsin river, is long and very narrow in spots. Fast, loud boats (such as cigarette boats) create unnecessary noise levels and dangerous conditions for others enjoying the lake for other sports and activities. Lake Wisconsin is a wonderful fishing lake, and fisherman surely find this disturbing. Some boats utilize motors exceeding the decibel level allowed on Wisconsin waterways. There have been numerous reports of boats coming very close to the shoreline and the Merrimac Ferry, as well as endangering non-motor water sport enthusiasts (for example, overturning kayakers). Laws exist to help keep the lake an enjoyable and safe place for everyone.  However, enforcement is minimal and inconsistent due to limited resources.   

A signature on this petition will help create a unified voice for improved enforcement of the existing state rules and regulations for boats: https://dnr.wi.gov/files/PDF/pubs/LE/LE0301.pdf
