TREGO LAKE DISTRICT: Trego Lake Sedimentation Study

1) Conduct water level monitoring in the flowage. 2) Determine present flowage volumes using depth transects. 3) Compare current flowage volume to that in 1989 DNR study. 4) Determine sources of sediment loading in the Namekagon River above the flowage. 5) Determine best locations for placement of sediment traps. 6) Make erosion control recommendations. 7) Prepare a final report that includes 1 - 6 listed above. 8) Monthly publication of the 'Trego Lake District Newsletter'.9) Information will be disseminated to the public by newsletter, fact sheet, local newspaper articles, public meetings, TV and/or radio spots, and a final report. Project results will be reposited at the Office of the Trego Lake District Secretary, Trego Town Hall, National Park Service Visitors' Center, Spooner Public Library, Bank of Spooner, Washburn County Extension Offices, Land Conservation and Soils Conservation Offices, DNR District Headquarters, and the Washburn County Clerks Office.
