LONG LAKE PRESERVATION ASSOCIATION: LMI-Implementing Stormwater BMP's in the Long Lake Watershed

Purpose

The Long Lake Preservation Association (LLPA) will sponsor a project to implement recommendations contained in the Long Lake Management Plan. The project will install structural Best Management Practices (BMP's), publicize and promote the use of BMP's, educate the public on the importance of runoff management control for lake water quality. Other components of this project include the education of boaters on the issues of prevention of invasive species introduction and lake-friendly boating in the channel areas to minimize sediment disturbance. BMP's to be installed through this project include three rain gardens (vegetated stormwater infiltration basins), grassed waterways, alterations to landscaping to enhance stormwater infiltration. The Hunt Hill Audubon Preserve will be the BMP installation site for onsite stormwater management and will provide a location to promote the use of these practices. Educational activities associated with this project include the use of newsletters, web page, the development of a watershed stewardship manual/calendar, public participation in the design and installation of the BMP's, an other educational efforts. Seven boat landing kiosks will be developed and installed, which will include information on invasive species prevention and lake-friendly boating. LLPA will hire a part-time project coordinator to assist in the administration of these project activities as well as other parts of the LLPA's strategic plan. Project deliverables for this project include a final report listing all project accomplishments. The Department of Natural Resources will be provided with both a paper copy and an electronic copy of all project products and periodic reports on the progress of the project.
