Small Scale Lake Planning
The Loon Lake-Wescott Management District proposes to conduct a follow-up aquatic plant survey and continue water quality monitoring. The goals of the project include 1) evaluating the effectiveness of treatments in controlling Eurasian Watermilfoil, 2) to assess responses of the native plant community, 3) to assess responses of curly-leaf pondweed (Potamogeton crispus), 4) to evaluate water quality impacts. The strategies for achieving these goals will include 1) conducting an aquatic plant survey that reproduces methods of the 2002 survey, 2) statistical analysis of plant survey data,
3) identification, mapping and area determination for Eurasian Watermilfoil and curly-leaf pondweed,
4) analysis of water quality parameters. The results of this survey will be presented in a follow-up management report. This management report will be presented to the Loon Lake Wescott Management District and to the Department of Natural Resources, both in written form and in electronic form.
