The 2015 Lake Winnebago budget was just approved and money has been allocated to accomplish lake dredging in “U” cove with a target timeframe between Labor Day 2015 and April 2016.
The HOA has allocated money to Hydraulic dredge the middle of “U” cove back to approximately lots 55 and 50. It is estimated that the water depth in the middle of the cove will be 6-8 feet going as far back as to include lots 55 and 50. Further back in the cove than 55 and 50, the water level and shape will stay relatively the same. Key to the dredging is the reallocation of dock rights which has been approved. It should be noted that the shoreline of any of the remaining lots for sale should be dredged by the new home owners for deeper water at their dock right or in front of their lot using a back hoe from the shoreline. A couple of residents in this cove have done this at a cost of $6000 to dredge and remove a few trees to accomplish about 6-8 feet of depth off their docks.
