Paul Dearlove joined Clean Lakes Alliance in 2014 and is the organization's Deputy Director. His primary focus is on advancing community-based phosphorus-reduction actions around Greater Madison's chain of five lakes. He also works to empower citizen participation by creating opportunities for people to become more informed and involved as donors, advocates and volunteers. This includes overseeing the organization’s education and engagement programs, including LakeForecast citizen monitoring, Volunteer Days, State of the Lakes reporting, Clean Lakes 101 Science Cafes, and immersion experiences like leadership training academies and youth camps. He most recently served as the managing director of the Yahara CLEAN Compact, a 19-partner coalition that developed an updated roadmap for improving lake conditions called "Renew the Blue: A Community Guide for Cleaner Lakes & Beaches in the Yahara Watershed."Prior to joining Clean Lakes Alliance, Paul spent 15 years as Lake Manager for the Lake Ripley Management District (Jefferson County, WI), which included directing the completion of a 13-year Priority Watershed Project through the Wisconsin Nonpoint Source Abatement Program. He also worked as a consultant preparing comprehensive lake and watershed management plans for Wisconsin lake districts and associations. Paul earned his M.S. in Water Resources Management from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, and has served on the boards of Wisconsin Lakes and the Friends of Lake Wingra. He currently serves on the board of the American Water Resources Association (Wisconsin chapter).
