BLAKE LAKE PROTECTION & REHABILITATION DIST: Big Blake Lake AIS Management Plan Implementation Project


Big Blake Lake Protection & Rehabilitation District is sponsoring a five-year project to implement approved aquatic plant management activities. Approved activities include mechanically harvesting curlyleaf pondweed in selected areas, aquatic plant surveys and reporting, and information and education outreach activities. Deliverables include GIS maps of areas monitored; aquatic plant survey results (spreadsheets and narrative summary); information and education products; and an updated Aquatic Plant Management Plan. Special Conditions: 1. WDNR's Aquatic Plant Management in Wisconsin guidance should be followed for point-intercept survey monitoring and aquatic plant management plan development. 2. All Clean Boats Clean Waters data must be collected on forms provided by UW-Extension/DNR and entered into the statewide database for reporting. This scope is intended to summarize the detailed project scope provided in the application and does not supersede those application tasks/deliverables. 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 Coordinator. Grantee or consultant will provide DNR Lake Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR shall receive both paper and electronic copies of the final report along with, or prior to submission of grantee's final payment request.
