Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Report
The Long Lake Protection & Rehabilitation District proposes to conduct a four phase comprehensive lake water quality monitoring, tributary monitoring, sociological survey, watershed evaluation, plant survey, and hydrologic and phosphorus budget study of Long Lake in Polk County. The Phase 1 through Phase 4 projects would provide data and analysis that would lead to the development of a comprehensive lake management plan in a future project.
Phase 1 activities will include; conducting a lake macrophyte survey and the collection of phosphorus and flow data from the "south ditch" tributary.
Specific deliverables for this Phase 1 grant project will include:
? A data summary of the macrophyte survey, macrophyte coverage maps, inflow phosphorus data and hydrologic data from the south trib.
? (If Phase 1 through Phase 4 projects are funded concurrently, a combined report may be produced to cover all four phase projects.)
Special conditions for this grant project will include:
17. The macrophyte survey report must incorporate any "sensitive area" designations that have been made on Long Lake and this activity should be coordinated with DNR Fish Manager Rick Cornelius, Barron and Water Resource Specialist Jim Cahow at Spooner.
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.
