CLEAR LAKE PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION INC: RES-Clear Lake Native Aquatic Plant & Habitat Restoration Project

Purpose

The Clear Lake Property Owners Association, Inc. is proposing to restore the rich native aquatic plant community of Clear Lake, Sawyer County by selective eradication of the exotic species, Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM), and long term protection of the natural habitat. The portion of the project to be funded with this grant include the development of contingency plans for possible aeration or replanting of native aquatic vegetation if either is necessary. Post treatment water quality and macrophyte surveys will be conducted for the next three calendar years to carefully measure the effectiveness of the treatment and the resultant impact on restoration of native plants. Significant financial support for this project has been offered by the herbicide manufacturer, SePRO, Inc., and the local chapter of Muskies, Inc. Specific deliverables for this grant project will include: A final report on the follow-up monitoring and the lake ecosystem response. 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.
