Cottage Glen Receives Environmental Award
The Door County chapter of Wild Ones - Native Plants, Natural Landscapes
presented its 2006 Award to the developer of Cottage Glen at Ellison Bay.
Cottage Glen's waste disposal system is a state-of-the-art at-grade aerobic biological system. Waste water is processed through a series of underground tanks utilizing a microbial-aeration technology that reduces the wastewater to essentially potable water before it is released to the drainfield.
The 3.5 acre drainfield is being restored to a natural Wisconsin prairie containing nearly two dozen species of native grasses and wildflowers. Prairie Nurseries of Westfield, Wisconsin was retained to undertake this restoration.
Along the southern edge of Cottage Glen, there is a five (5) acre bluff that has been protected with a perpetual conservation easement. From this preserved setting one can see the waters of Ellison Bay and Green Bay.
A high volume community well serves all the homes at Cottage Glen. The system includes a well house containing a 3,600 gallon pressure tank and an underground 11,000 gallon tank reserve. The quality of water will be monitored on an ongoing basis to comply with the State of Wisconsin municipal standards.
The developers have chosen to construct less than 2 units per acre on the site and have determined to have an impervious surface ratio of less than 20%. The impervious surface ratio includes all buildings, roads, parking, and other improvements that restrict the absorption of water.
A comprehensive drainage plan, approved by Door County, has been implemented to ensure proper surface water management.
A recycling center is located on the property.
