Steve Austin, PO Box 66, Danbury, WI, 54830, has applied to the Department of Natural Resources for a permit to place piers in Webb Lake The project is located in the SW of SE of Section 16, Township 41N, Range 14W in Town of Webb Lake, Burnett County.

The Webb Lake Campground Dock Project’s goal is to gain safe and stable marine docking for the community. Currently there are 6 roll in docks that are very old, unsafe, unstable and in need of extensive repair. The 6 docks are all along the main shoreline and have been there for over 20 years. There are currently 32 mooring slips available and this has been the case for over the last 20+ years as well. This project plan is to replace all existing docks with new floating docks. By replacing with the floating dock system, it is more environmentally sound, eliminating lake bottom and marine life disturbance. It is also much better for the shoreline as our proposed dock layout does not disturb the shoreline.

The Department will review the proposal provided by the applicant and any information from public comments and the public informational hearing. The Department will determine whether the proposal complies with ss. 1.11, 30.12 and 30.208, Stats., and ch. NR 150, Wis. Adm. Code, and ensure that the required mitigation meets the standards in s. 281.36(3r), Stats. if the project impacts wetlands.

The Department has made a tentative determination that it will issue the permit for the proposed activity.
