Dane County LWRM Plan

The Dane County Land and Water Resource Management (LWRM) Plan is a state-mandated long range planning document intended to guide the activities of the Land Conservation Department (LCD) in its efforts to protect and improve the natural resources in Dane County.  Wisconsin Act 27 (1997-1999 Biennial Budget Bill), Chapter 92.10 of the Wisconsin Statutes, includes provisions for County Land and Water Conservation Committees (LWCC) to develop County Land and Water Resource Management (LWRM) plans. County LWRM plans are envisioned to be a local action or implementation plan with emphasis on program integration.

The 2019 Dane County LWRM Plan, is currently being revised with the assistance of a Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC).  This plan will serve for the next 10 years as the guide for Dane County to protect and preserve the land and water resources of Dane County.  For additional information, please contact Amy Callis at: (608) 224-3740 or callis.amy@countyofdane.com.
