Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Report
The Blue Mountain Lake Ltd proposes to begin work toward a comprehensive lake management plan for Blue Mountain Lake. The objective of this study is to provide a baseline characterization of the lake while identifying lake management issues and needs. To meet this objective, the lake study will include delineation of watershed drainage basins and corridors, identification of existing land uses in the Blue Mountain Lake watershed, exmination of the impacts of existing land uses on water quality, characterization of the lake's substrate and morphology, water quality monitoring, and an aquatic vegetation survey. To disseminate information to the public and increase local understanding of lake management issues, a public meeting will be held prior to project start-up to present goals and objectives of the lake planning project and obtain public input regarding lake concerns. At completion of the project, the resuslts of the lake planning study will be disseminated to local lake management organization members through a public meeting, news releases, and summary reports. A report containing the results, management alternatives and implementation strategies for the recommended management alternatives will be submitted to DNR.
