Large Scale Lake Planning
The objectives of this study were to characterize existing lake conditions and to make recommendations to protect and improve the lake environment where feasible.
The Upper Turtle Lake Association will conduct a comprehensive study of Upper Turtle Lake and its' watershed in Barron County. Activities involved in this study include; a watershed soil analysis and runoff sampling, a shoreline septic leachate survey, a shoreline habitat survey, a wildlife survey, lake water quality monitoring, a macrophyte survey, lake resident survey, watershed land use analysis and nutrient budget modeling, development of an information and education program, and the preparation of a comprehensive Lake Management Plan for Upper Turtle Lake.
Specific deliverables for this project include copies of the final comprehensive plan and project report including survey results, and the non-technical summary report in newsletter format.
