Welcome to the Unified Lower Eagle River Chain of Lakes Commission

The Unified Lower Eagle River Chain of Lakes Commission (ULERCLC or the "Commission") was formed in April 2007 to implement and coordinate aquatic invasive species awareness, prevention, and management efforts on the Eagle River Chain.

It is a unique public-private partnership formed by a joint intergovernmental cooperative agreement between the Towns of Cloverland, Lincoln, and Washington, and the City of Eagle River.

Each of the ten waterbodies of the Eagle River Chain is represented in the Commission. Hence, the public-private partnership.

In 2007 nearly 300 acres of Eurasian water milfoil blanketed the Eagle River Chain of Lakes, endangering the ecosystem and making use of the waterbody difficult.

The Commission worked to develop a Chainwide, long range, multi-year plan for the management of aquatic invasive species in accordance with the WI DNR guidelines. It has applied for and received state grant funding for the AIS management projects of the Eagle River Chain.
