CITY OF PORTAGE: Silver Lake WQ Monitoring Project

Purpose

This grant will collect baseline water quality data, delineate watershed boundaries and land uses to estimate internal and external nutrient loads, develop a lake response model for watershed improvement activites and contribute data to help develop an APM plan and large scale management activities for Silver Lake. This grant is part one of three grants, all which contributed to the ranking score. Part two is aquatic plant survey, and part three is development of an APM plan and large scale management activities. Deliverables: A final report, including all raw data, will be provided on hard copy to all stakeholders. In addition, a CD containing a pdf. file of the report will be submitted to the DNR Lake Coordinator for posting on the internet. Color printed maps will be provided along with the GIS data used to create them. Water quality samples will include all samples listed in the text of the application as well as the final SLOH cost spreadsheet. A public meeting will be held with the City of Portage to share the results of this grant. Deliverables specifically include the following items that provided eligible points in the ranking score: A4, C1, C2, D1, D2, and D3.
