OCONTO COUNTY: LCO - Oconto County Lake Study, Phase 1, Grant 10


The Oconto County Land Conservation Department is sponsoring a multi-phased project to develop a County Wide Lake Study and Planning Project for all lakes in Oconto County with public access. The project final deliverables of Oconto County Lake Study and Planning, Phase 1, Grant 10 include mini-reports for each lake and a summary report that compares the individual lake results for these six lakes. The mini-reports will include key maps and graphs with brief interpretations written for a citizen audience with sections on water quality, the aquatic plant community, AIS, shorelands, fisheries, lake settings, and watersheds with associated land uses. This project also proposes to assess the capacity of groups and lake front property owners through Meet Your Scientist/Capacity Building Meetings. The DNR Biologists will conduct Aquatic Plant Point Intercept Surveys, Woody Habitat Surveys, Shoreline Surveys, Aquatic Invasive Species Surveys, Water Quality Sampling, and will update lake bathymetry. Specific project activities include: 1) Shoreline and course Woody Habitat Assessment per DNR protocol. 2) Aquatic Plant Point Intercept Survey using the DNR protocol. 3) Capacity Building Special Conditions: 1) DNR protocol for Point Intercept Surveys shall be used. 2) DNR Protocol for Shoreline Assessment and shall be used. This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. Data, records, and reports, including GIS-based maps, and digital images, must be submitted to the Department in a format specified by the regional Lake Biologist.
