Comparison of the data collected from PI surveys on Lower Vermillion Lake, Barron County in June of 2018.
On June 4th, we conducted a pretreatment survey to gather baseline data from the scheduled treatment areas and to allow LEAPS and the VLA to finalize treatment plans. Following the herbicide application that occurred later that same day, we conducted a June 23rd posttreatment survey to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment. This report is the summary analysis of these two field surveys.
