LAKE PEWAUKEE SANITARY DISTRICT: Pewaukee Lake Plant Survey

The Lake Pewaukee Sanitary District will hire a contractor to conduct a plant survey on Pewaukee Lake. The plant survey will be a point intercept survey with 977 points. The lake will be sampled in mid-summer. The project deliverables are a formal report which includes an introduction, methods, results (tables and graphs) and discussion as well as herbarium mounts of voucher specimens. Elements of the report include 1) Results of the point intercept survey - raw data; 2) Summary tables that list the plants found, # sites found, overall % frequency of occurrence, % relative frequency of occurrence, overall average density rating and relative average density rating; 3) A discussion (text) that explains what the results mean and an overall assessment of the plant community in the lake; and 4) Point intercept maps for each exotic species and the top three to five native plants. Two paper copies and one electronic copy of the final plan will be provided to the department. Exact details for all deliverables are described in the project description of grant application.
