Renew the Blue: A Community Guide for Cleaner Lakes & Beaches in the Yahara Watershed

Renew the Blue: A Community Guide for Cleaner Lakes & Beaches in the Yahara Watershed is the culmination of 2.5 years of planning and community engagement. Led by a cross-sector “compact” of diverse groups, the initiative seeks to drive further progress toward cleaner, healthier lakes. By spotlighting a more participatory path forward, all of us are called upon to be a part of the solution by adopting a new water ethic. Renew the Blue points to specific actions that, if collectively implemented, will unleash the untapped potential of our lakes in ways that have so far proved elusive.  We invite you to join us and play an important role in this community renewal effort. While our individual actions may seem small on their own, we know they are cumulatively powerful in shaping the world as we’d like to see it.
