The Wisconsin Coastal Management Program congratulates the Ozaukee County
Planning, Resources and Land Management Department on receiving the
prestigious Walter B. Jones Award for its efforts to restore and enhance
Lake Michigan coastal areas.

Through partnership efforts such as those led by Ozaukee County, we can
protect our environment and pass on to future generations the legacy of
Wisconsin's extraordinary Great Lakes.

The Walter B. Jones award, given biannually by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration in Washington, recognizes persons and
organizations that have shown innovation, resourcefulness and leadership in
maintaining America's coastal resources.  NOAA cited Ozaukee County for
several recent accomplishments:

Ozaukee County led the combined efforts of the Wisconsin Coastal Management
Program, Department of Natural Resources, Ozaukee Washington Land Trust,
Riveredge Bird Club and the Town of Grafton to purchase and protect the
pristine Lion's Den Gorge with  mile of Lake Michigan shoreline in Ozaukee
County.

Ozaukee County worked with the Great Lakes Nonpoint Abatement Coalition
(GLNAC) and the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program to process milk house
wastewater and protect the Lake Michigan watershed.

Ozaukee County led an effort to provide an understanding and mitigate the
hazards of building close to Wisconsin's receding Great Lakes bluffs.

Ozaukee County Planning, Resources and Land Management Department Director
Andy Holschbach accepted the Jones Award at an awards ceremony in Washington
DC on March 19.
