MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Department of Natural Resources has pulled back a plan for monitoring shoreline changes that called for surveyors to take pictures of shoreline properties.

The plan called for two people to circle in a small boat and take pictures of the shoreline. The protocol advises surveyors not to photograph people and respect residents’ concerns.

Katie Hein, the DNR’s lake monitoring lead, said the plan was meant to give lake associations looking to learn more about their lakes a process for gathering data.

The DNR put the plan up for public comment on May 31 but pulled it back after a week. Hein declined to say why. DNR spokesman Jim Dick cited unspecified concerns about the plans. He didn’t respond to any asking him to elaborate.
