LITTLE CEDAR LAKE P & R DISTRICT: Starry Stonewort Containment in Little Cedar Lake


The Little Cedar Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District is sponsoring a project to experimentally control starry stonewort, an exotic algal species, in conjunction with a federal grant. Project deliverables include: Entry of all data collected into excel spreadsheets, electronic copy of final report and entry of all CBCW data into SWIMS. Specific project activities include: 1) Hand pulling of Starry Stonewort, 3 times a summer over a period of 3 years; 2) Placement of biodegradable mats interwoven with native plants in hand pulled areas; 3) Completion of annual sub P/I survey in the hand pulled area; 4) Completion of 3 annual full lake P/I surveys; 5) 100 hours of CBCW efforts annually; and 6) Development of a final report. Special Conditions: The report should contain the following: 1) Maps showing the distribution of starry stonewort from the annual sub P/I surveys; 2) a summary of CBCW efforts; 3) discussion of the successes, challenges and failures of the project; 4) Maps developed from the annual full P/I surveys showing the distribution of the top 5 to 7 native species as well as starry stonewort and EWM; and 5) a map showing the location of the biodegradable mats. 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. If consultant is to provide final report, it is recommended that Grantee provide DNR Lake Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant.
