PRICE COUNTY: Musser Lake Early Detection Invasives Control


The Price County Land Conservation in cooperation with the Musser Lake Association will sponsor a project to treat curly-leaf pondweed in Musser Lake, with the goal of early eradication. 38 small areas containing CLP have been marked by the lake association and monitored to date. Beginning in Spring of 2005 areas will be treated in accordance with the Department issued Aquatic Plant Management permit. Follow up treatment of these areas and/or new areas will be conducted in Spring of 2006 and 2007. The association will also provide an educational component to teach area residents of the dangers of aquatic invasive species and control/prevention measures, as well as giving periodic project updates. Products: 1) Pioneer beds of curly-leaf pondweed will be chemically treated in accordance with the Department issued Aquatic Plant Management permit. 2) Pre and post treatment surveys (for known and unknown areas of infestation), mapping the location and densities of CLP, will be conducted. 3) Follow up treatment and monitoring of affected areas will continue in 2006 and 2007. 4) Annual progress reports and a final report will be made available to the DNR, Price County Land Conservation Dept., local lake associations, districts, and media.
