Large Scale Lake Planning
The objectives of this study were to characterize existing lake conditions and to make recommendations to protect and improve the lake environment where feasible.
The Lake Nancy Protective Association, Inc. will conduct a comprehensive study project involving lake water quality monitoring, aquatic plant survey, watershed analysis & nutrient budget development, shoreland survey, milfoil weevil evaluation, development of an information and education program, and the development of a comprehensive lake management plan. This project is on Nancy Lake in Washburn County. Ongoing project activities will be disseminated via newsletter(s), meeting(s), and final report mailings.
Specific deliverables for this grant project will include:
* A final report compiling all information collected during the project activities listed above and including an aquatic plant management plan and a comprehensive lake management plan.
