LAKE NOQUEBAY REHABILITATION DISTRICT: Lake Noquebay Comprehensive Management Plan

Purpose

The Lake Noquebay Rehabilitation District proposes to develop a Comprehensive Lake Managment Plan. Deliverables will characterize current water quality and develop goals; evaluate past NPs initiatives and ID opportunities; identify problems/needs of the lake management unit; characterize Aquatic Plant Community, develop APM goals, construct plant GIS layer, and ID management alternatives; review institutional watershed controls and develop recommendations; assess fish and wildlife habitat and ID critical habitat areas; develop AIS (aquatic invasive species) prevention plan and educational materials; and complete lake comprehensive plan document. This scope is intended as a summary; the more specific scope is provided in the grant application and does not supersede the specific scope elements described within the application.

Description of Aquatic Plant Community.
Lake Noquebay is a 2,406-acre drainage lake located in Marinette County, Wisconsin. It is the largest lake in the county and a popular tourist destination for fishing and motorized water sports. The privately held shoreline frontage is heavily developed with approximately 270 permanent and seasonal homes. The lake has three private resorts, a County owned park, swimming beach, and several boat landings. The State-owned Lake Noquebay Wildlife Area borders the lake to the east. The purpose of this report is to develop a long-range sustainable plan for the management of aquatic plants in Lake Noquebay with an emphasis on: the control of variable-leaf watermilfoil (Myriophyllum heterophyllum); aquatic invasive species planning & prevention; and the preservation of sensitive areas and critical habitat.
