As many have heard, the DNR is planning to re-pave the Wind Lake public launch parking lot. The original plan was to re-pave it in 2021 but the project was delayed to 2022. The DNR has again postponed the project because recent bids have been considerably higher than projected. Asphalt is petroleum based and just like the price of gasoline, the quotes have come back considerably higher than when the project was first budgeted. If prices drop, the paving could happen in fall.
The Wind Lake Management District in conjunction with the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary will again be hosting a Vessel Safety Check on June 11, 2022. The free event will be held at the DNR Public Launch on South Wind Lake Road and will run from 10am to 3pm.
The Vessel Safety Check is a free inspection of your boat, intended to find safety issues before they become bigger problems on the water. If your boat passes inspection, you will receive a decal to show that your boat is safe. There are not any punitive actions if your boat fails inspection, just suggestions to correct the issues. If you can’t make it to the event but would like a safety check performed on your boat, please contact Dan Jahn at (414) 614-3164.
