Hey guys this is a general question. I drove down to appleton from Eau Claire took 10 out of osseo and around the point area i noticed there a literally dozens of ponds along the highway. Some of them are pretty good sized. Do these ponds all have fish in them and are they public? I was thinkin they were just holding ponds for Ag or livestock but damn there were a lot of them. Anyone familiar with this area?

Thanks Cronk

That may be true about replacing wetlands also, but I watched for two years all the rock hauled out of some of these ponds because my woods is next to a large one. Some of them are easily 60 plus feet deep where there was good granite deposits. West of Junction City they even used dynamite to get out the rock. Now they all look like nice little ponds but some are very deep.

From my understanding, the road building company has to replace wetlands destroyed by the road building by constructing ponds. If I'm not mistaken, the dirt from the ponds has little to do with the road construction.

To answer all your questions. They are from when they made the road, they dug out the gravel and rock and used it to build the road base. No they are not public, they are on private land and off of the right of way. And yes they do have fish in them, either from natural reproduction or landowners stocking them. Hope that answers your questions.
