Reports and Documents
Aquatic plant management (APM) programs are designed to further a variety of lake user and riparian land owner goals and desires. For example, most APM programs aim to improve lake navigability. However, APM programs must also be sensitive to other lake uses and must maintain or enhance a lake’s ecological integrity. Consequently, APM program objectives are commonly developed in close consultation with many interested parties. The Lauderdale Lakes APM plan considered input from many entities including the Lauderdale Lakes Lake Management District (the District) and the WDNR.
