Promoting Stewardship of Inland Waters in Bayfield County, Wisconsin
The Bayfield County Citizens for the Protection of Inland Waters (CPIW) is a volunteer committee that works to encourage all citizens to actively engage in the care and stewardship, as well as enjoyment, of our county's water resources.
The CPIW seeks to further the protection of our water resources by encouraging meaningful public discussion of shoreland issues and regulations, ensuring the fair and equitable enforcement of those regulations, and proactively educating shoreland owners. Our education effort focuses on protecting natural lakeshores and improving developed lake properties.
The Citizens for the Protection of Inland Waters committee, in cooperation with the Bayfield County UW Extension, recently received a DNR Lake Management Grant that provides funding for the distribution of a packet of informational resources beneficial for lakeshore property owners.
The CPIW recognizes that lakeshore property owners are at the forefront of water resource stewardship. The choices made by property owners directly affect the water quality, health, and beauty of Wisconsin waters. The CPIW packet is designed to assist property owners carry out the important responsibility of protecting their shoreline.
