Large Scale Lake Planning
(1) Perform an agricultural land use inventory of the George Lake area and create map(s) identifying agricultural acreages, agricultural acres planned with BMPs, agricultural areas where BMPs have been implemented, under what state and federal programs, for what time periods, and county agricultural soil erosion plan acres identified as having potential adverse impacts on surface/ground waters. (2) Identify wetlands on a map using the USDA NRCS inventory and show any wetlands restored from agricultural use; identify sensitive water resources. (3) Review and summarize in a report historical water quality assessment data existing for George Lake. (4) Identify any urban stormwater improvement projects on a map; recommend areas where needed. (5) Recommend changes to local shoreland/wetland ordinances to address water quality issues/problems (6) Prepare a final report including the results of tasks 1-5.
