WAUPACA CHAIN O'LAKES PUBLIC INLAND LAKE P&R: Waupaca Chain O'Lakes AIS Prevention, Education & Control Project


The Waupaca Chain O'Lakes Protection and Rehabilitation District proposes to implement elements from its Aquatic Invasive Species Information, Education and Prevention Strategic Plan and Aquatic Plant Management Plan during the period 2005 - 2007. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Waupaca Chain O'Lakes Protection and Rehabilitation District's Aquatic Invasive Species Grant application, dated January 31, 2005. The project includes developing and implementing an information and education program, volunteer boat monitoring program, aquatic invasive species monitoring and mapping program, and conducting a study to determine the potential fiscal and economic impact of aquatic invasive species on the local economy. Additionally, the project seeks to control established infestations by conducting annual aquatic invasive plant surveys, treating areas infested with Eurasian watermilfoil and curly-leaf pondweed with aquatic herbicides, and using biocontrol methods on areas infested with purple loosestrife. Incremental and final project reports will be shared with local stakeholders and will be provided to the University of Wisconsin - Extension. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the three-year project will be provided to DNR. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended the Grantee provide the DNR Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee's final payment request.
