Large Scale Lake Planning
Lake Management Plan Development
Nutrient Budget Development
Big Chetac Chain Lake Association is sponsoring a multi-phase comprehensive lake management planning project for Big Chetac Lake, Sawyer County. The project includes tributary, in-lake, and groundwater monitoring; septic survey; nutrient budget development; pale ecological core; aquatic plant survey and management plan; and community survey and education with a comprehensive lake management and implementation plan as the final deliverable.
Phase 3 includes:
1. Nutrient budget and nutrient management plan (analysis/mass calculations).
2. Septic survey
The Phase 3 deliverables are data analysis for a nutrient budget which will lead to a nutrient management plan. Mass calculations of phosphorus will be included from the following sources: near shore analysis, watershed tributaries, groundwater, internal loading and septic system loading. A Septic Survey will also be conducted to quantify the condition of all septic systems on the lake and identify those that are failing.
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 Coordinator.
