Small Scale Lake Planning
The Waupaca Chain O'Lakes District proposes to conduct a small-scale lake planning grant to develop an aquatic plant management plan for the East Chain of the Waupaca Chain O'Lakes. Approximately 15 transcets will be used, duplicating a survey from 1994. A lake by lake visual inspection will be conducted to determine the presence of Eurasian Watermilfoil, purple loosestrife and adult zebra mussels. The field work will be conducted during the summer months of 2004, with the aquatic plant management plan developed by December 31, 2004. The plan will be used to direct aquatic plant management activities on the Waupaca Chain O'Lakes. The plan must be approved Department of Natural Resources Aquatic Plant Manager. The plan will be provided to lake residents, Waupaca Chain O'Lakes District, Waupaca Chain O'Lakes Association, Waupaca County Land and Water Conservation Department and Wisconsin DNR. The plan will be available both in bound form and electronic copy.
