Large Scale Lake Planning
The City of Shell Lake District will develop and implement an invasive nuisance species (INS) control plan for the 2003 boating season to prevent the transport of INS into Shell Lake, monitor for infestation and control any infestations that are discovered.
This project will implement recommendations from the Shell Lake "Lake Management Plan," and will also comply with requirements of the recent DNR permit to discharge excess lake water to the Yellow River. Project activities include; installing and maintaining new and improved "alert" signs at boat landings, training and organizing hired staff and volunteers to monitor and conduct INS info sessions at boat landings, monitoring for any new INS infestations, and establishing volunteer programs to help control the spread of INS.
Specific deliverables for this grant project include:
-- A Final Project Summary Report including the project results.
The Department of Natural Resources will be provided with both a paper copy and an electronic copy of the final report. The project results will be disseminated to the public by newsletter(s), public meeting(s), and local newspaper articles.
