Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Report
The Rinehart Lake Association, in conjunction with researchers from the U.W. Stevens Point, proposes to monitor water quality and chemistry on Portage County's Rinehart lake, and at the same time, produce maps of the lake's watershed, aquatic vegetation, and soft sediment depths. Project activities would include: 1) Map watershed surface and groundwater inflows, 2) Determine inflow water quality, 3) Map aquatic vegetation distribution and soft sediment depths, 4) Study water and sediment samples for animal and plant life, and 5) Bi-weekly/monthly sampling and water chemistry analysis. 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 through a report to be completed at the end of a proposed second phase of the project.
