GENEVA LAKE ENVIRONMENTAL AGENCY: Geneva Lake SSW Rapid Response 1- Chemical Treatment, Monitoring, and Education


The Geneva Lake Environmental Agency is sponsoring a project to seasonally control starry stonewort, an exotic algal species in Geneva Lake by implementing two chemical treatments, a CBCW program, community outreach and plant survey work. Project final deliverables include: An electronic copy of the final report, an electronic copy of the dredging bid ready plans and entry of CBCW data into SWIMS. Specific project activities include: 1) Placement of educational buoys in the water; 2) Implement CBCW activities at the public boat launches; 3) conduct two chemical treatments to temporarily prevent the spread of starry stonewort; 4) conduct a full lake P/I survey; and 5) development of engineering plans, specifications and bid documents for the planned dredging project. Special Conditions: The report should contain the following: 1) a summary of CBCW activities; 2) treatment records; 3) a summary of outreach efforts; and 4) Maps developed from the full P/I survey showing the distribution of the top 5 to 7 native species as well as starry stonewort and EWM. 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. DNR to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to submission of grantee's final payment request.
