Purpose

The Southeastern Wisconsin Invasive Species Consortium is sponsoring a project to control Java Water Dropwort along a portion of the Bark River in Waukesha County and a portion of a Milwaukee River Tributary in Milwaukee County. Reed Mannagrass, growing along a portion of the Bark River, will also be controlled. Project final deliverables include: a report that compiles and maps the original and final extent of Java Water Dropwort and Reed Mannagrass in the defined project area; a list of chemical treatments that took place for each project area with dates of treatments and results of post treatment assessments; details regarding the volunteer activities used as match for this project; and maps/lists that show the restoration effort. Specific project activities include: 1) ground truthing of Java Water Dropwort along the Milwaukee River; 2) development of a map depicting the distribution of Java Water Dropwort along the Milwaukee River; 3) chemical treatments of Java Water Dropwort and Reed Mannagrass in the project areas, 4) post treatment assessments; and 5) revegetation of the treated areas with native seeds and plant plugs. Special Conditions: 1) All data shall be entered into the SWIMS database; 2) Volunteer lists, equipment use lists and signatures shall be maintained for reporting in kind volunteer labor and equipment.
