Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Grant
The Wolf River Preservation Association proposes to examine differences in percent contribution of algae, detritus, and sediment to total suspended solids concentration by mass during different months; and study the relationship between diurnal fluctuations in tirbidity and motorboat use levels and differences in motorboat impacts on turbidity by time of year. This project is the 3rd phase of studies which includes 3 lakes and the main stem of the Wolf River. Data from this study will be used to develop future recommendations for improving water clarity in Partridge Lake, Partridge Crop Lake, Cincoe Lake and the Wolf River. If a relationship is found between motorboat use and turbidity levels, management prescrpitions aimed at reducing the impact will be developed. The DNR will be provided with both a paper copy and an electronic copy of the final report. The results of the study will be disseminated locally and to local and state government via community meetings and a written report.
