Large Scale Lake Planning
The purpose of this map is to show the natural and man-made features and land uses of the shoreline and near-shoreline areas of Pine Lake. It was done to fulfill a requirement of the two-year lake study that was partially funded by the Pine Lake Property Owners Association.
The Pine Lake Property Owners Association proposes to finish development of a comprehensive lake management plan for Pine Lake. The study will take place in two phases. This is phase two of the study and will include the following: 1) complete the surface water sampling component of the study initiated in phase one; 2) collect and analyse samples from 60 private wells located within the Pine Lake groundwater watershed to provide information on the deeper groundwater discharging into the lake; 3) calculate nutrient and water budgets; and 4) conduct a fish population comparison using data collected in phase one and historic DNR data. Results from both phase one and phase two will be summarized in a final report that will describe the water quality and physical lake characteristics, its watershed and associated land uses, water and and nutrient budgets and modeling results, and interpretation of the data as well as recommendations. The final report will be provided to the DNR in both a paper copy and an electronic copy. This report will also be distributed to the Wautoma library, Fox-Wolf 2000, Fox-Wolf Basin Educator, Waushara County Land Conservation Department, and the Wisconsin Water Resources Center. Environmental Task Force Program staff will present the final results to the Association upon completion.
