MARINETTE COUNTY: Bass Lake Alum Treatment Evaluation

Purpose

Marinette County is sponsoring a project to evaluate the effect of watershed nutrient controls and the 1999 alum treatment, during the time span of Feb. 2018 \2013 Dec. 2020. The project elements and deliverables are specified in Marinette County\2019s Grant application dated December 5, 2017. The project consists of: Conducting continuous flow monitoring on the Bass Lake inlet for use in watershed nutrient load estimates and lake nutrient budgeting, monitoring phosphorus concentrations in the Bass Lake inlet, calculating external phosphorus loading to Bass Lake, conducting a nutrient budget for Bass lake, conducting lake response modeling, and collecting sediment cores from Bass Lake to be analyzed for physical properties, aluminum, concentration, bound and soluble phosphorus, and measure soluble reactive phosphorus release rates.
