KILBY LAKE PROTECTION AND REHABILITATION DIS: Kilby Lake EWM Rapid Response
Return to Search
The Kilby Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District is sponsoring a EWM control and monitoring project through the Rapid Response program. The goal of the project is to understand the EWM population, paying particular attention to controlling this exotic plant species in an ecologically sound basis. Project Activities: 1. Determine the extent and dynamics of the EWM population within Kilby Lake, through Early-Season AIS (ESAIS) and late-summer EWM Peak-biomass surveys. A point-intercept survey will also be completed each year. 2. Develop a control strategy based on survey results and advanced bathymetric surveys. 3. Acoustic plant survey 4. Herbicide treatment 5. Investigate opportunities of hand pulling after initial herbicide treatment. Project Deliverables: Each fall/winter following the open water season, an annual AIS monitoring and Control Strategy Assessment Report would be produced and sent out in Adobe\2019s Portable Document Format (PDF) and their effectiveness. This report would also discuss/propose active management and monitoring strategies for the following summer. The proposed active management strategy would be evaluated during the spring pretreatment survey. A final treatment map and associated email report would be provided to the KLPRD, herbicide applicator, and WDNR for final approval. Specific datasets or layers requested by the WDNR would be supplied in ESRI Shapefile format.
