LBMD or LBPIA

It is often asked “What is the difference between Lake Beulah Management District (LBMD) and Lake Beulah Protective Assocation (LBPIA)?” To follow is a brief summary:

Lake Beulah Management District (LBMD) is a government body made up of elected leaders who represent: Lake Beulah Riparian Owners, Town of East Troy, and Walworth County.  These elected leaders are responsible for the health of the lake including the shoreline and watershed.  LBMD’s main objective is to preserve and protect the waters of Lake Beulah as well to promote the safe use of its waters for recreation and leisure activities.  Everyday responsibilities of LBMD consist of harvesting the aquatic plants (weeds) & monitoring the health of the lake’s chemistry, clarity and cleanliness.  Lake Beulah is considered a pristine lake and LBMD is committed to carrying on this legacy for future generations to enjoy.

The Lake Beulah Protective and Improvement Association (LBPIA) is a member-based organization dedicated to preserving the quality of Lake Beulah’s natural resources and sustaining its inviting environment. LBPIA is dependent on annual dues from its members for its funding. All who use and enjoy the lake are welcome as members. Begun in 1894 as a collective effort to manage lake issues, the LBPIA has grown into an effective organization seeking to assure that the pristine quality of the lake remains for future generations.

A MAJOR VICTORY FOR LAKES & STREAMS IN WI

CONGRATULATIONS LAKE BEULAH RIPARIAN OWNERS AND RESIDENTS!   Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn recently handed down an important landmark decision that will go a long way in protecting lakes and streams in Wisconsin from high capacity wells.  As you may remember several years ago the Lake Beulah Management District sued the Village of East Troy over there placement of a high capacity well directly in the aquafer feeding the lake.  Over the ensuing months and years the District persevered in the case and had to take it all of the way to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.  The results of this effort and money spent was a victory for Lake Beulah known as the Lake Beulah decision.  In the recent decision, Clean Lakes vs Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources,  the Third District Circuit Court repeatedly cited the Lake Beulah decision and was a primary factor in the decision.   The Lake Beulah Management District is exceeding proud of the role we and all of Lake Beulah residents played in the protection of the waters of Wisconsin.

We have posted the whole decision for those who may choose to read it:   Clean Wisconsin v DNR high cap well decision.pdf (00735608xC3B04)
