IRON RIVER PIKE CHAIN OF LAKES ASSOCIATION: Pike Chain of Lakes-Management Planning Project-Eagle Lake-#6

Purpose

Iron River Lakes Association will sponsor a project to assess watershed, water quality, & aquatic plant conditions; coordinate stakeholder participation & planning; develop a lake management implementation plan focusing on aquatic plants for the Pike Chain of Lakes. The project includes grants for each lake in the Chain & one for stakeholder participation & planning. Deliverables include a report including task methodologies & results; maps of aquatic plant communities & sensitive areas; management alternatives discussion & implementation plan. Tasks include: 1. Water quality appraisals, determination of limiting nutrient, trophic states & historical data review. 2. Watershed land use definition/delineation & identification of problem areas. 3. WiLMS modeling with WINTLOAD estimates for internal loading, if appropriate. 4. Early season curlyleaf pondweed "meander" survey on all lakes; point-intercept surveys & voucher specimen collections on Buskey Bay, Millicent, Eagle, & Flynn Lakes; pre-treatment Eurasian watermilfoil surveys on Hart & Twin Bear Lakes; aquatic plant communities mapped according to community type, dominant species, & invasive species presence. 5. Sensitive area mapping (identified by WDNR). 6. Fisheries management summary/recommendations; integration of DNR fisheries management plan as report appendix. 7. Zebra mussel veliger monitoring (3 sites in the Chain sampled once in June and in July or August) following DNR Dreissena Mussel Monitoring Protocol. 8. Stakeholder survey; scoping/planning sessions; development of sociological & scientific goals, objectives; implementation alternatives. 9. Creation/distribution of news releases. This scope summarizes the application scope & does not supersede the application tasks/deliverables. Data, records, & reports, including GIS-based maps & digital images, must be submitted to the DNR in a format specified by the Lake Coordinator. DNR shall receive report in paper & electronic form.
