Manitowoc’s Lake Michigan and Fond du Lac’s Lake Winnebago contribute to each community’s recreational habits. Residents are interested in water fun, but are often hesitant to step foot in their local lakes.
Blue green algae in Lake Winnebago and issues with E. coli in Lake Michigan keep many people out of the water, Larson said.
And yet lakeside culture beckons.
He counts on that, among other things, for success at Fondy Aqua Park.
People are “excited to come out and try it,” Schneider said.
