MT. MORRIS LAKES MANAGEMENT DISTRICT: Mt. Morris Lk AIS Control & Prevention Project


The Mount Morris Lake Management District proposes to control curly-leaf pondweed (CLP) and Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) through chemical treatment, mechanical and hand removal, and preventative measures in Mount Morris Lake during the period 2006 - 2011. The project elements and deliverables are specified in Mount Morris Lake Management District's Aquatic Invasive Species Grant application, dated January 22, 2006. The project includes monitoring the extent and density of CLP and EWM annually through pre-treatment and post-treatment surveys of known infested areas, and monitoring other lake areas for the presence of aquatic invasive species (AIS); treating CLP infested areas with an aquatic herbicide; conducting hand-removal of CLP and EWM by divers; mechanically harvesting CLP; conducting water quality monitoring; conducting an aquatic plant survey using the point-intercept method and updating the Mount Morris Lake Aquatic Plant Management Plan; and conducting volunteer activities to prevent further AIS infestations, including conducting watercraft inspections. Reimbursement for mechanical harvesting is limited to only CLP infested areas for the purpose of minimizing turion production; harvesting for purposes of nuisance relief or navigation lanes will not be reimbursed. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the five-year project will be provided to DNR. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended the Grantee provide the DNR Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee's final payment request.
