Large Scale Lake Planning
During 1994, the Long Lake Preservation Association completed the first phase of a three phase project to develop a Lake Management Plan. The Phase I project was primarily a data collection project to evaluate the water quality of the lake and assemble requisite data for subsequent phases of the project. Consequently, water quality data, lake level data, precipitation data, and watershed land use data were collected. Ensuing phases of the project will prepare hydrologic and phosphorus budgets for existing watershed land use conditions and will prepare the management plan for Long Lake.
Conduct water quality monitoring of lake. Assess summer plankton populations. Monitor precipitation and lake levels. Conduct aquatic plant survey. Evaluate available watershed information. Collect phosphorus data from watershed lakes. The granteewill disseminate information to the public by newsletter, local newspaper articles, public meetings and report mailings. Project results will be reposited at Long Lake, Birchwood, Madge Town Halls, Long Lake Chamber, Washburn County Land ConservationDepartment, and Tomahawk Scout Reservation.
