LOON LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT: Loon Lake Eurasian Watermilfoil Treatment


The Loon Lake Management District proposes to control Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM) to sub-nuisance levels through chemical treatment and preventative measures in Loon Lake during the period 2004-2006. Specifically, the project will consist of conducting annual aquatic plant surveys and mapping the extent of EWM and any other exotic plant species; treating EWM infested areas with an aquatic herbicide; and conducting volunteer activities to prevent new aquatic invasive species infestations, including distributing educational materials to lake users, conducting watercraft inspections and posting/maintaining informational signs at public access points. Annual progress reports describing monitoring results, the location of exotic plant species, and aquatic plant management recommendations will be provided to DNR. A final written report will be submitted to the department documenting their accomplishments. If consultant is to provide final report, it is recommended that Grantee provide DNR Lake Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to submission of grantee's final payment request.
