Large Scale Lake Planning
WCLPRD is sponsoring a project to develop a Comprehensive Management Plan in the time span of Feb. 2017 \2013 Dec. 2019. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the WCLPRD Grant application dated Dec. 10, 2016.
Project final deliverables include:
1)Watershed and Water Quality Analysis: Using WISCALM and WiLMS (below), water quality data will evaluated for potential issues of nutrient loadings and excessive algae growth. The current and long-term trophic state will be determined. An evaluation of the WCL Watershed will be completed using data from the SWAT Model for the Upper Fox & Wolf River Watershed TMDL. SWAT results will provide external phosphorus (P) loading and a lake P budget will estimate in-lake P sources. P reduction targets will be generated for the watershed & in-lake sources.
2) Shoreline Course Woody Habitat Assessment, using DNR protocol (Brenda Nordin will provide)
3) Aquatic Plant Community Assessment- #3 below
4) Socioeconomic Survey, using DNR protocol- #4 below
5) Kickoff, second, and final meeting.
