Sheboygan River Basin
The rivers, lakes, groundwater and lands in the Sheboygan River basin sustain a wide range of plant and animal life as well as offer wide range of quality. From the natural and agricultural rural areas to the urban and urbanizing areas, one thing remains constant.
Our land and water resources are forever linked. Our activities on the land have an effect not just at the point of origin, but ripple throughout the basin. The quality of our rivers, lakes and groundwater also has influence over what we do on the land.
Today we are challenged with finding ways to balance our use of land and water with our desire to protect, restore and enhance the natural resources in the Sheboygan River basin. Building and maintaining strong partnerships with shared visions and goals are essential to striking this balance.
