Watershed Restoration Plan
Root-Pike Watershed Initiative Network (Root-Pike WIN) was recently awarded $190,000 by the Fund for Lake Michigan and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to lead the development of a comprehensive watershed restoration plan of the Pike River in Kenosha and Racine counties. As part of the plan development, public input is being sought. Seven public meetings have been scheduled through May of next year.

The first public input meeting will be held on Thursday, September 29 between 5:30 and 7:00 p.m. at Hawthorn Hollow, 880 Green Bay Road, Somers. The topic of the meeting is "Overview of the Pike River Watershed and Planning." Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide input. To learn more, please see the downloadable PDF below.

During 2008, the Village entered into an intergovernmental agreement with the Root-Pike Watershed Initiative Network (Root-Pike WIN) along with several other southeastern Wisconsin municipalities. The agreement outlines a plan for storm water information and education services that the network will provide to participating municipalities throughout Kenosha, Racine and Milwaukee counties. The ultimate goal of the agreement is to reduce the level of pollutants that are returned to our natural waterways through storm water runoff.
