FOND DU LAC COUNTY: Kettle Moraine Lake Long Term Exotic Species Control Study


Amend #2: The Fond du Lac County Land and Water Conservation Department, on behalf of the Kettle Moraine Lake Association, proposes to control Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM) through chemical treatment and preventative measures in Kettle Moraine Lake during the period 2005 - 2007. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Fond du Lac County Land and Water Conservation Department's Aquatic Invasive Species Grant application, dated January 12, 2005, and the "Amendment to the Scope of the Aquatic Invasive Species grant proposal for Kettle Moraine Lake, Fond du Lac County", dated February 23, 2006. The project includes mapping the extent of EWM annually; treating EWM infested areas with aquatic herbicides;; and conducting volunteer activities to prevent further aquatic invasive species infestations, including distributing educational materials to lake users, conducting watercraft inspections and posting/maintaining informational signs at public access points. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the three-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.
