Funding available for Lake Wisconsin water habitat improvement projects

Prairie du Sac, Wis. – March 16, 2015 – Qualifying governmental units, conservation and river management groups, and educational institutions have until April 30 to apply for grant dollars from the Prairie du Sac Dam Aquatic Resources Enhancement Fund. The Fund will provide monies for 2016 projects focused on improving the waters of the Lake Wisconsin basin.

“Alliant Energy has contributed to the Fund for over a decade and we’re excited that the dollars will be used to benefit Lake Wisconsin and the rivers in the area that so many utilize and enjoy regularly,” said Amanda Acton, Alliant Energy’s Hydroelectric Manager.

Projects eligible for financial support include aquatic studies and research, water quality enhancements, and habitat mitigation and enhancement. Projects must be located between State Highway 12 and the tailrace of the Castle Rock Dam, including tributaries of the Wisconsin such as the Baraboo River.

The River Alliance of Wisconsin, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will select the projects that will receive grants. Grant requests should not exceed $50,000 per year, for a maximum of two years. The grant awards will be announced in late May.

For more information on the Fund and to obtain grant application materials, please email AmandaActon@alliantenergy.com orCheryl.Laatsch@wisconsin.gov.
