BURNETT COUNTY LAKES & RIVERS ASSOCIATION: Lake Launch Monitoring & AIS Education - 2 Seasons

Purpose

Burnett County Lakes & Rivers Association is sponsoring a two-year boat launch surveillance, watercraft inspection, and public education project on five lakes (Mud Hen, Lake Twenty Six, Big Wood, Yellow, and Johnson Lakes). This is a two-year pilot project in Wisconsin and the only of its kind being funded with AIS grant dollars. The project includes: monitoring equipment installed at seven landings that will capture the frequency of usage and identify high-use time periods; a process for capturing and reporting violations of the Illegal to Launch law; development of angler education materials that will be distributed to local bait shops; implementation of garbage receptacles at landings; and a Clean Boats Clean Waters workshop. Specifically the deliverables associated with this project include: 1. A project report summarizing education and outreach and monitoring activities and surveillance/landing activity. 2. Clean Boats Clean Waters data collection summary. Data collected must include those data required as part of the CBCW program and must be entered in the statewide database to be eligible for grant reimbursement. Special Conditions 1. Any new identification of an aquatic invasive species must be immediately reported to the Department. 2. 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 Coordinator. 3.
