Project deliverables include: 1) Data from PI aquatic plant survey, stakeholder survey, water quality, AIS survey, aquatic animal reports, shoreland and littoral habitat surveys, and watershed assessment; 2) Aquatic plant vouchers for any new species located; 4) Education meetings, workshops, and materials; 3) Updated LMP and APMP. Specific project conditions: 1) Draft of stakeholder survey needs to be submitted to DNR for review and approval before sending to public; 2) LMP needs DNR review and approval; 3) WDNR Lake Biologist will be provided with an electronic copy of reports and/or management plans; data from PI survey, stakeholder survey, water quality, watershed assessment, AIS survey, shoreland and littoral habitat survey (including parcel photos), rare species; a set of aquatic plant vouchers for any new species; all maps from project, and all GIS data.
