Bass Lake PWS Plan - Nine Key Element Plan

Purpose

Bass Lake, a small lake in southwestern Marinette County, has experiences substantial degradation over the last 10 to 20 years. During December 1984, articles appearing in the Wisconsin State Journal and the Milwaukee Journal referred to Bass Lake as a lake that has died. In essence, this plan describes the game plan necessary to resurrect Bass Lake.

Objective

This plan has been prepared to guide the implementation of a Small-scale Watershed Project for the Bass Lake Watershed in Marinette County as part of the Wisconsin Nonpoint Source Water Pollution Abatement Program. It involves a watershed assessment, detailed program for implementation, and a project evaluation.

Outcome

Generally the phosphorus from upland erosion sources can be reduced by reducing the soil loss. Therefore, alternatives for reducing the phosphorus are based on different target levels of soil loss.
