PICKEREL CHAIN LAKES ASSOCIATION: LMI - Little Pickerel Aeration Implementation Project


The Pickerel Chain Association proposes to install an aerator in Little Pickerel Lake. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Pickerel Lake\2019s Protection Grant application, dated February 1, 2017. This grant will fund the installation of an aeration system in Little Pickerel Lake. The aeration system will be installed in 2017 using PCLA members and assisted by the Oconto County WDNR fisheries staff for placing the airline and diffusers. Providing electric power and completing the on-shore preparation work to house the system compressors will occur in late summer/fall. Placement of the system airlines and diffusers into the lake will occur in the fall of 2017. Signing at all public access points to all three lakes of the chain will be placed prior to the ground freezing and the lake forming an ice cover. Open water safety fencing will be installed using the same type fencing system used on Pickerel Lake and will be placed by PCLA members once safe ice for foot travel is present. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended that the Grantee provide the DNR Lake Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR will be provided both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee\2019s final payment request. All information associated with this project is subject to public record.
