Large Scale Lake Planning
The lsland Chain is a popular set of lakes used extensively for recreation. The study of the lakes funded by a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Lakes Planning Grant was designed to analyze and report on three main issues concerning water quality. These issues were: 1. nutrient concentrations in the lakes; 2. concentrations of fecal coliform bacteria in shoreline areas; and 3. current trophic status and algal populations found in the lakes.
1) Conduct water quality monitoring as specified in the application. 2) Collect and analyze 5 inflow samples as described in the application.3) Conduct a synoptic bacterial survey as specified in the application. 4) Summarize water quality information and evaluate lake's trophic status.5) Develop technical report analyzing water quality and trophic status, and develop non-technical report summarizing information for the public.6) Disseminate information to the public through newsletter mailings, public meetings, and summary and entire report mailings.
