FRIENDS OF THE WHITE RIVER ASSN INC.: Lower White River Preservation & Restoration Planning Project

Purpose

The Friends of the White River Assn proposes to conduct a preservation and restoration planning project. The primary goals of this project will be to gather baseline information on the physical, chemical and biological aspects of the White River and Neshkoro Millpond and the surrounding watershed; to address excessive aquatic plant growth and the presence of exotic species; to identify and prioritize management concerns; and to provide information needed to make informed decisions regarding the future management of the waters both ecologically and sociologically. Deliverables include: Aquatic Plant/Sediment Depth Assessment: Conduct a point-intercept survey of submergent aquatic plants; Map the distribution and acreage of nuisance aquatic plants; Measure soft sediment depths at PI locations. Water Quality Assessment: Assess trophic condition of millpond; Develop Trophic State Indices (TSIs). Watershed Assessment: Delineate watershed boundaries via topographic maps; Document watershed land uses and cover types using standard use categories used in WILMs Lake Model Suite; Identify potential nutrient and other pollution loading sources. Citizen Participation: Present appraisal findings at public meeting; Present recommended strategy; Finalize public adopted strategy and incorpoarate into plan. Develop Final Aquatic Plant Management Plan
