Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Report
The Polk County Land and Water Resources Department proposes to conduct a comprehensive lake water quality monitoring, sociological survey, watershed evaluation, plant survey, etc. study of Largon Lake in Polk County. This project is proposed as a two phase comprehensive planning study. Phase 1 activities would include; compiling watershed map, conducting a landowner survey, watershed land use inventory, lake level and precipitation monitoring, sediment core study, fisheries analysis, macorphyte survey, and I & E program development. Ongoing project activities would be disseminated via newsletter(s), meeting(s), and news release(s), and compiling a final report.
Specific deliverables for this Phase 1 grant project will include:
? A final report compiling all information collected during the project activities listed above.
