Clean Boats/Clean Waters

Long Lake has one the most effective Clean Boats/Clean Water programs in the state of Wisconsin. Starting back in 2004, our volunteers built a program that now routinely delivers over 500 hours of community service time annually working weekends from Memorial through Labor Day at our landing. Volunteers each work for 1- or 2-hour shifts (between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm) to educate users about WI laws related to boating, fishing, aquatic invasive species (AIS) and to check incoming and outgoing boats for aquatic weeds and undrained water.

For volunteers it is a great way to meet new people and give back to the lake they love.  For the lake it is the best defense against invasive species.  While we have recently discovered the presence of zebra mussels and a single patch of Flowering Rush,  Long Lake remains free of Eurasian Water Milfoil, which is a costly AIS that has been established in many nearby lakes.

Fire Safety

It’s Up to You – Please protect our beautiful woodlands and lakeside habitat by taking these precautions whenever you plan to build a fire:

  • Get a free annual burning permit from WDNR. Click Here to get a permit.
  • Keep your printed and signed permit available (or on your smartphone) while burning.
  • Check the daily burning restrictions here before starting a fire, or call the hotline at: 1-888-WIS-BURN (947-2876).  Updates are posted after 9:00 am daily.
  • Have a water source and fire tools available.
  • Keep the size of your fire manageable.
  • Maintain a 12-foot overhead clearance and enough side clearance along your driveway to enable Saxeville-Springwater Fire Department vehicles to expeditiously access your property in the event of a fire or Emergency Medical Service call. See WDNR Guidelines.

Campfires –
Burning debris, such as leaves, even in a campfire ring or firepit requires a burning permit.  However, small wood campfires intended for warming or cooking purposes do not require a permit and are allowed anytime of the day, except during Emergency Burning Restrictions.

Regardless of what or where you are burning, always stay in control of your fire and make sure your fire is completely extinguished before you leave it!
