Large Scale Lake Planning
Management objectives should target continued monitoring, better definition and reduction of surface runoff (where possible and practical), riparian education/awareness of land use practice effects on water quality and potential use conflicts: · Areas of concern should be assessed for nutrient and sediment contributions to surface and groundwaters. Riparian landowner education and awareness regarding yard practices should be emphasized and measures implemented where appropriate and practical. · Water quality monitoring should be continued to track trends and develop an accurate nutrient budget. Secchi depth monitoring should be continued along with lake level readings. Rainfall data should be recorded as practical to supplement this data. · A DNR fishery survey should be completed in the next five years to determine the status of fish populations. · An exotic species watch group should be encouraged to monitor or remove exotic species when encountered. Members should coordinate with the WDNR Exotic Species Program and inform the PLIC membership and public on the hazards of exotic species as they relate to Pleasant Lake.Areas defined as "sensitive areas" should be designated accordingly to help protect and preserve the resource.
Assemble existing information on the lake and watershed; conduct water quality monitoring; conduct recreational lake use study.
