RED LAKES ASSOCIATION

The Upper and Lower Red Lakes, in Shawano County, were created through damming of the the Red  River in 1880 and 1965, respectively.

The Red Lakes Association was formed in 1990, by shoreland property owners to facilitate the management of both the Upper Red Lakes and Lower Red Lakes. In 1991 studies were completed on both lakes to provide baseline data for the development of lake management plans for the lake. In general, the studies indicated that both lakes tend to be mesotrophic to eutrophic as a result of their large watershed to lake area ratios. The studies also found that both lakes contain nuisance levels of of aquatic plant growth and much of that growth was water milfoil. The management plans recommended general improvements to the watershed to reduce nutrient and sediment loading, continued monitoring of the water quality and macrophytes, and multiple plant control methods, including mechanical harvesting.

In 2004, the Red Lakes Management District (RLMD) was created. Later that same year, its first operating budget was created with a portion of its funds being earmarked for a project aimed at updating the management plans for both lakes.
