Lily Lake Aeration System
You may now notice what look like floating boulders in Lily Lake! These plastic domes were recently installed as part of the new aeration system on the lake that will prevent winter fish kills. Brown County has been aerating the lake for many years, but this new system should more effectively oxygenate the lake’s water at only about 25% of the previous electrical costs. The new system, with its “rock” domes covering the diffuser heads, will be installed late in the fall each year and removed upon ice-out in Spring. As always, once ice conditions allow, staff will be erecting a barrier fence around the aerated section as a warning to ice fisherman using the lake that there may be thin ice in that particular area.

Brown County Parks Is Using The Sun To Generate Electricity At Two Park Locations
These “renewable energy” systems called photovoltaic (PV) systems capture the light from the sun and turn it into electricity. By using the sun’s energy we can save money by reducing the need for purchased electricity and we can also benefit the environment through reduced air pollution normally associated with fossil fuel generated electricity.
