WILLIAMS BAY — The Geneva Lake Environmental Agency is looking for kayakers to help with an Aug. 4-5 effort to rid the lake of the invasive plant species starry stonewort.
Divers will be hand-pulling starry stonewort from the lake bottom, and volunteer kayakers are needed to haul bags of the unwanted plants to a nearby transport boat.
Volunteers will not need to get out of their kayaks, and the bags of starry stonewort will remain in the water at all times. Kayaks are requested because divers will be working in the area, so motorized boats could be unsafe.
If interested in helping, call Ted Peters with the environmental agency at 262-949-9823.
A construction worker laboring on Durand Avenue was killed Thursday morning after a cement truck backed over her, according to a release from the State Patrol. Another worker also is reported to have critical injuries.
Evers announced on Tuesday the new mask mandate — along with the governor's third public health emergency — in an effort to control the spread of COVID-19. Positive cases have been rising since students returned to campus, despite a mask mandate being in effect since July.
