Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Report
The Bear Lake Homeowners Association, Inc., proposes to develop a comprehensive lake management plan for Bear Lake. The study will consist of a number of components including: 1) evaluate surface water quality and physical lake characteristics, its watershed and associated land uses; 2) determine areas of groundwater inflow and outflow along with the quality of the groundwater flowing into the lake; 3) develop a water and nutrient budget and run a lake response model; 4) inventory aquatic macrophytes; and 5) survey residents. The data collected will be compared to similar data collected in previous studies. A final report with survey results and recommendations will be provided to the DNR in both a paper copy and an electronic copy. The survey results will also be distributed to the Manawa and Waupaca libraries, Fox-Wolf 2000, Fox-Wolf Basin Educator, Waupaca County Land and Water Conservation Department and the Wisconsin Water Resources Center. Environmental Task Force Program staff will present the final results to the Association upon completion.
