ADAMS COUNTY: LCO-Adams Co Lakes Classification - Phase 1

Purpose

Adams County proposes to initiate a Lakes Classification effort to assist in comprehensive plan development for communities surrounding its lakes with public access. Phase 1 elements, to be funded with this grant, include: 1) delination of surface watersheds and flow patterns, 2) delineation of ground watersheds, 3) identification and mapping of land uses, 4) inventory and mapping of shoreline erosion and development problems, 5) identification and mapping of sensitive/critical areas and natural heritage habitats, 6) verification of wetland delineations, 7) delineations of lake watersheds, 8) development of lake maps. DNR will be provided with both hard copy and electronic versions of a final report on this project. Results will be shared with partner agencies, town boards, lake districts and associations and members of the public through public meetings, individual lake summaries, a powerpoint presentation and development of a Lakes Protection Plan. Copies ofthe final report will also be made available to local libraries.
