RED CEDAR LAKES ASSOCIATION: Red Cedar Lakes CLP Management and AIS Education


The Red Cedar Lakes Association is sponsoring a project to control Curly leaf pondweed (CLP) in Balsam, Red Cedar, and Hemlock Lakes. They will also be conducting some aquatic plant and water chemistry monitoring at neighboring Bass Lake. Project activities: 1)Curly-leaf pondweed (CLP) herbicide control, 2) Pre/Post treatment aquatic plant monitoring, 3) CLP bed mapping, 4) CLP turion Survey, 5) Herbicide concentration monitoring, 6) Purple Loosestrife monitoring, removal, and beetle rearing, 7) Annual AIS workshop, 8) Volunteer AIS monitoring, 9) Shoreland habitat assessment, 10) Bass Lake aquatic plant survey, 11) Wild rice bed mapping, 12) Bass lake water quality monitoring Project deliverables include: GIS data and maps of areas monitored and controlled Aquatic plant and turion monitoring data and reports Copies of educational materials developed AIS monitoring data in SWIMS database Water quality data in SWIMS database Shoreland habitat assessment data and report Management/treatment summary reports Specific project conditions: WDNR\2019s Aquatic Plant Management in Wisconsin guidance shall be followed for aquatic plant monitoring. Sponsor shall contact DNR immediately if a new AIS is found. AIS monitoring and watercraft inspection personnel shall be trained and follow DNR approved protocols. AIS monitoring data shall be entered in SWIMS Education materials shall be consistent with the Department\2019s statewide education strategy for preventing and controlling AIS. The DNR logo should be used for promotion and publicity and DNR recognized as a funding source. This scope summarizes the scope in the grant application and attachments and does not supersede those application tasks/deliverables

Reports and Documents
The Red Cedar Lake Association identified 21 plots with curlyleaf pondweed (CLP) spread across the three main lakes in the chain (Hemlock, Red Cedar, and Balsam; see map on page 2). To assess the response of CLP and native plants in herbicide-treated plots, we conducted pretreatment (May 23) and posttreatment (Jun 18) point-intercept plant surveys in each of the potential management plots.
