GREEN LAKE SANITARY DISTRICT: LMI-DF-Big Green Lake Loading Feasibility Study

Purpose

The Green Lake Sanitary District proposes to conduct a feasibility study to assess nutrient loadings on Big Green Lake. The project will lay the foundation for reducing nutrient and sediment loads with the lake andits tributaries. Major components will be a watershed inventory, develop watershed/lake models for predicting trophic impacts, study long-term historical influences, develop objectives and public education and awareness alternatives. AMENDMENT #1: The Green Lake Sanitary District proposes to conduct information/education workshops, compile a partnership resource list and develop pilot shoreland restoration on five demonstration sites. ADDS $30k TO TOTAL GRANT AWARD. AMENDMENT #2: The Green Lake Sanitary District proposes to continue with their RSVP project, requiring the funding for the shoreland technician who has been instrumental in this project. This will allow a smooth transition from a Lake grant funded temporary to a Sanitary District funded position.
