LAKE OWEN ASSOCIATION, INC.: Implementing the Lake Owen Comprehensive Management Plan

Purpose

Lake Owen Association is sponsoring a project in partnership with Northland College to implement their approved management plan. Activities include staff and support to complete the following major activities: shoreline restoration and Healthy Lakes planning (min 18 properties) and installation; decontamination; additional critical habitat monitoring and mapping; and a diagnostic/feasibility study of food web dynamics. Final deliverables are described in detail in the application, and progress updates will be shared regularly via steering committee and LOA board meetings. Special conditions: a steering committee, including DNR, will oversee the project; traditional shoreline restoration projects require the project remain in conservation use in perpetuity on the deed, and Healthy Lakes projects require 10-year operation & maintenance plans and data collection as described in grant condition #24. If best practice(s) are implemented on land owned by the grant Sponsor, this Lake Protection Grant Agreement serves as the contract. If best practice(s) are implemented on land other than the Sponsor\2019s, a contract between the sponsor and landowner that abides by grant condition #24 is required. The Department may require re-payment of project installation costs if the best practice is disturbed or removed. The Sponsor and/or the Department may perform site inspections and/or monitoring to ensure project success. The specific objectives, metrics, and deliverables for the listed activities are included in the application and supporting materials, and this scope is not intended to replace or supersede those documents.
