WHITE RIVER FLOWAGE ASSN: White River Flowage APM Plan

Purpose

The White River Flowage Association proposes to develop an aquatic plant management plan and conduct an aquatic plant survey. The survey will include 15 transects with 2 plant collections archived, one with the consultant Aron and Assoc, and one with White River Flowage Assoc. The aquatic plant management plan (APM plan) will follow existing DNR guidelines (rake coverage method*) and include: goals and objectives reached via a public participation process; a description of the public participation process utilized for goal and objectives setting; historical overview of White River Flowage (WRF) plant management; maps of the plant community, general lake structure, and sensitive areas; review of aesthetic qualities; review of lake use and lake use issues and any lake use ordinances specific to WRF; a review of APM alternatives specific to WRF; aquatic plant survey data, summary and GPS coordinates of all sampling points; a watershed overview with analysis relative to watershed factors that influence the WRF plant community. The DNR will be adopting a revised plant survey protocol, including a "Point Intercept" method based on a grid rather than transects. The WRF is encouraged, but not required under this grant, to adopt this methodology. More information can be obtained by contacting you APM coordinator.
