Large Scale Lake Planning
Lake Lorraine Aquatic Plant Mangement Plan
Lake Lorraine Aquatic Plant Survey Technical Report
A consultant hired by the Limnological Institute, in conjunction with the Lake Loraine Property Owner's Association, will conduct a point intercept plant survey in mid summer 2004. The consultant will follow the methodology for the plant survey as outlined in the grant application narrative. The project deliverable for this grant will be submittal of two paper copies and one electronic copy (on a CD-ROM) of the final report to the WDNR. The Limnological Institute will present the report findings at a meeting with the Lake Loraine Property Owner's Association.
The final report will contain the following elements: 1) Results from the plant survey; 2) Maps of plant beds, lake morphology and ecologically important areas; 3) Plant list; 4) Plant management goals, objectives, alternatives and management recommendations; 5) GPS survey points; 6) Mapping the aerial extent of curly leaf pondweed and eurasian water milfoil and 7) A copy of the public meeting agenda. Specific summary report elements are listed in the project narrative.
Scope amendment: 5-12-04 Less sampling points are going to be done. 130 points down to 50 points based on the newly developed state protocol.
Additional GPS mapping to depict areas of 1)submergent,2)emergent,3)floating leaf, and 4)nuisance native plant areas will be set up due to less time spent on sampling.
