LAKE ALICE ASSOCIATION, INC: Lake Alice Eurasian Watermilfoil Rapid Response


The Lake Alice Association is sponsoring an Eurasian Watermilfoil project. As stated in the Lake Alice Association Adaptive management Plan (2009), the primary goal is to maintain a healthy lake ecosystem. EWM was discovered in July of 2014. Project goals include: 1) Conduct initial reconnaissance to locate and document EWM in the vicinity of the original find (completed in 2014); 2) Survey the entire Lake Alice for EWM (completed in 2014); 3) Hand-pull EWM from the identified sites (completed in 2014); 4) Conduct early spring recon of known sites in 2015 and 2016; 5) Hand-pull EWM plants in 2015 and 2016; 6) Conduct 2015 meander search for EWM in Lake Alice; 7) Conduct a PI aquatic plant survey and compare with data from 2010 PI survey.; 8) Update the Aquatic Plant Management Plan (APMP); 9) Conduct a plant workshop for Lake Alice stewards. Project deliverables include: 1) Results from the point-intercept survey; 2) 2. An updated APMP; 3) A lake stewards workshop that addresses lake ecology, native aquatic plant community (including plant identification), and aquatic invasive species; 4) A report on Eurasian water milfoil management and monitoring efforts; 5) Results of hand-pulling efforts. Specific conditions for this Project: 1) The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) will be provided electronic and hard copies of all data and or reports/plans generated as a result of this project; 2) Implement the pre and post treatment monitoring protocol if control techniques are deployed.
