BLACK OTTER LAKE P & R DISTRICT: Black Otter Lake AIS Control

Black Otter Lake District proposes to continue to educate the public and manage aquatic invasive species (AIS) in Black Otter Lake. Specifically, Black Otter Lake District will:

1. Annually assess the aquatic plant community utilizing early-season and fall aquatic invasive species surveys and summer point-intercept surveys following DNR protocols.

2. Control AIS using early-season chemical treatments and hand-pulling.

3. Educate the public on AIS prevention activities utilizing the Clean Boats/Clean Waters Program, Hortonville High School students to conduct AIS surveys, use of trail-style cameras at the public launch, and installation of informational kiosks at the major access points of the lake. Volunteer AIS monitoring results will be entered into SWIMS.

4. Plant emergent plant species and conduct other habitat improvement projects in the lake.

5. Generate annual project reports with a summary of education and control activities, survey results, as well as recommendations for the following year.

The project elements and deliverables are specified in the grant application materials submitted to the Department dated February 1, 2013.
