WIND POINT — After more than two years of planning, Root-Pike Watershed Initiative Network will introduce its plan to restore the Wind Point watershed at a meeting Thursday evening.

The Wind Point Watershed Restoration plan will include 10 projects most critical to complete a restoration of the watershed, which includes portions of Racine and Milwaukee counties.

Officials with Root-Pike WIN will present the plan at a public meeting Thursday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Wind Point Lighthouse, 4725 Lighthouse Drive.

Attendees should RSVP by emailing

Root-Pike WIN worked with the City of Racine Health Department to monitor water quality, and spoke with residents, company owners and public officials to come up with a schedule and cost estimates for the restoration projects, according to a press release.

The plan was funded by The Fund for Lake Michigan, SC Johnson Fund, and We Energies Foundation, according to the release.

The completed plan is also available online at under the “Help Now” tab.
