CEDAR LAKE PROTECTION & REHABILITATION DIST: Cedar Lake Healthy Lakes Native Plantings
Cedar Lake P&R District is sponsoring a project to implement best practices described in Wisconsin\2019s Healthy Lakes Implementation Plan. Practices may include fish sticks, 350 ft2 native plantings, diversion, rock infiltration, and rain gardens, and all best practices must follow the associated Healthy Lake technical guidance.
The best practices require a 10-year contract and must include minimum operation and maintenance requirements and data collection as described in grant condition #24. If best practice(s) are implemented on land owned by the grant Sponsor, this Lake Protection Grant Agreement serves as the contract. If best practice(s) are implemented on land other than the Sponsor\2019s, a contract between the sponsor and landowner that abides by grant condition #24 is required. The Department may require re-payment of project installation costs if the best practice is disturbed or removed. The Sponsor and/or the Department may perform site inspections and/or monitoring to ensure project success.
An example final report is available to capture deliverables, including pre and post photos, data collection requirements, and a checklist describing records like the signed 10-year contract and best practice and design plans the Sponsor should maintain.
Special conditions: The state share of each best practice cannot exceed $1,000. The state share of grant administration and technical assistance costs may not exceed 10% of the grant award; technical assistance does not include implementation labor. Funding cannot be used for mitigation or regulatory compliance activities. Water regulation and/or county zoning permits must be issued before construction. The Healthy Lakes logo should be used for promotion and publicity, and DNR recognized as a funding source.
