Large Scale Lake Planning
Columbia County proposes to collect watershed data in order to develop a TMDL in a future grant. In this phase I grant, they will collect tributary monitoring data for Park Lake twice/month Mar-Nov, and monthly Dec-Feb, plus event samples 5 times/yr. Volunteers will record daily precipitation Apr-Nov at 3 sites. Lake data will be sampled 7 times/yr, plus weekly Secchi depths. Results will be shared via regular public meetings with the Lake District. The final report will be submitted on paper and electronically, including all raw data. Deliverables include all data collected per grant application, (all raw data reported), news releases and meeting presentations; final report hard and electronic copies.
Please note: Final report deliverables help us ensure that the grant has been satisfactorily completed, and that state dollars are being spent wisely. Every deliverable, no matter how minor, must be completed in order to receive full reimbursement for the state share of costs. Ranking questions used to obtain this award, and specific deliverables mentioned in your grant description, constitute final report deliverables. If any deliverable is not adequately provided in the final report, only partial reimbursement, at the department's discretion, will be made. The only exception will be if there is a well-justified and department-approved scope amendment. If you have any question about what a specific ranking question or other deliverable means, please contact your lake coordinator BEFORE you sign this agreement.
