BONE LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT: LMI-Lake Management Plan Implementation

Purpose

Bone Lake Management District is sponsoring a Lake Protection grant to implement activities from their approved lake management plan. The specific project tasks include: 1) Design and install watershed BMPs; 2) Mini (10x35 foot) shoreline buffer restorations; 3) Design and install waterfront runoff projects; 4) ALUM dosage analysis; 5) Installation of woody habitat structures; 6) Establish Slow-No-Wake Ordinance; 7) Develop land protection strategy. Maintenance, operation, and protection will be specified in a ten-year contract for each BMP site. The Department may perform site inspection and/or monitoring. Project deliverables include: a report and map summarizing project activities including number of shoreline buffers and watershed BMPs installed, number of runoff reduction sites installed, pre/post photos of funded restorations and other BMPs, list of property owners and parcels committed to covenants and/or contracts, alum dosage report, and educational materials developed. Special conditions: Applicable water regulation and/or county zoning permits must be issued before construction activities commence. This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. Data, records, and reports, including GIS-based maps, and digital images, must be submitted to the Department in a format specified by the regional Lake Biologist.

Maintenance plan for the Rosenthal property
Waterfront properties (along with the larger watershed) are one of the sources of phosphorus and sediment that flow into our lake causing algae blooms – 36% of the problem as identified by a 2017 study of multiple sources of phosphorus. Some properties generate more runoff and carry more phosphorus and sediment‐‐ those with steeper slopes, channels of water flow, structures or hard surfaces close to the lake, or a lack of natural vegetation at the shoreline. Your property might have at least one of these characteristics. If it does, consider scheduling a free, no‐obligation site visit.

Hypolimnetic anoxia, frequent summer water column mixing, and late summer peaks in epilimnetic P and chlorophyll all suggest that internal P loading from bottom sediments may be contributing to WQ impairment in Bone Lake. These investigations are designed to examine rates of phosphorus (P) release from sediment under aerobic and anaerobic conditions and mobile forms of sediment P in order to better understand the magnitude of internal P loading in the lake.

In 2015 Ayres Associates completed a LiDAR data acquisition project for Polk County. LiDAR mapping for Polk County will be the basis for developing county-wide phosphorus reduction strategies for lake protection. LiDAR was used to delineate watershed boundaries and determine areas of highest nutrient loading for the Cedar Lake TMDL.
