Big Muskego Lake/Bass Bay Protection and Rehabilitation District was formed in 1978. District boundaries were drawn to include riparians (landowners with lake frontage) and other landowners within a certain proximity to the lake. These property owners are assessed a tax to finance lake management projects. 

The district recently applied for an aquatic plant control permit from the DNR to treat up to 100 acres of near-shore water for Eurasian Watermilfoil.
