Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Report
Monitor Targeted Area
This project will focus on 10 lakes in Forest County. The project includes the development of maps of current riparian development, shoreline use and habitat, and macrophyte populations. Areas of future possible development will be estimated and recommendations as to which areas should have restricted development based on shoreline morphology, habitat, and water quality will be developed. A compilation of current lake property values will be completed. Mapping of macrophyte populations will be completed to provide data for future comparison; identify areas for limited or restricted recreational use; identify exotics and specific management strategies; identify endangered/threatended species.
Data will be compiled on current recreational uses on at least 3 lakes. Water quality data will be collected on at least 5 lakes.
A final report will be developed. Information will be sent to each of the 10 lakes and will be available to the public at the Forest County Courthouse (UW-Extension).
