SHAWANO COUNTY: LMI-Shawano Lake Diagnostic Feasibility Study

Purpose

Shawano County proposes to conduct a diagnostic and feasibility study to better understand the ecosystem of Shawano Lake and its watershed, to educate and inform the public about this ecosystem, to establish a management partnership to identify appropriate management options, and to implement a management strategy. The objectives of the study include: determine the current water quality in Shawano Lake, understand how/where watershed land uses impact water quality, identify the importance of internal sources of phosphorus, assess the influence of aquatic plants on lake water quality, foster a cooperative and active community focused on Shawano Lake and its watershed, develop community and agency agreement on effective management options, and implement the management strategy. The project elements and deliverables will be completed as described in the project proposal submitted to the Department and dated April 28, 2005.
