Property Owner Wants to Anchor Floating Bog
Richard E. Uihlein, CEO of Pleasant Prairie-based Uline Corp wants state approval for a project designed to keep a 12-acre floating bog away from his northern Wisconsin property by permanently fastening it to the bottom of the lake.

The plan is unprecedented for the sprawling Chippewa Flowage; it calls for crews to use barges, a crane and a pile driver to pound large posts through the bog and anchor it to the lake bed.

Crews would use "multiple high horsepower boats to push the bog away from the Uihlein property," then move it from the southern end of Kavanaugh Bay to the northern end next to land managed by the DNR.

Eight barges would be tied together where a pile hammer and Manitowoc Co. crane would be used to pound 50 large columns — 4 feet in diameter — through the bog and into the bottom of the lake to keep the tangle of roots, sphagnum moss and other greenery in place.

Minnesota AIS Training for Lake Service Providers - In 2011, the Legislature passed a number of new laws related to prevention and management of aquatic invasive species (AIS) that apply to boaters, property owners, service providers, bait dealers and others involved with the transportation of water-related equipment. Service providers are now required to have a service provider permit before conducting work that includes placing or removing water related equipment from any state waters. Individuals who work for a service provider must also take training.
