GREEN LAKE COUNTY: Big & Little Twin Lakes AIS Management Project

Purpose

Amended 9.28.10: The Green Lake County Department of Land Conservation proposes to control curly-leaf pondweed (CLP) and Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) through chemical treatment and preventative measures in Big and Little Twin Lakes during the period 2008 - 2012. The project elements and deliverables are specified in Green Lake County's Department of Land Conservation Aquatic Invasive Species Control Grant Application, dated January 29, 2008. The project includes conducting annual pre-treatment and post-treatment surveys to monitor the extent of CLP and EWM and efficacy of treatments; treating CLP and EWM infested areas with aquatic herbicides; reconfiguring the boat launch and installing a carp gate to deter free-floating aquatic invasive plants and carp migration; hiring a county intern to conduct education and prevention activities to prevent further AIS infestations, including training local residents in "Clean Boats Clean Waters", placing signs at boat landings, and plan public outreach materials. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the five-year project will be provided to DNR. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended that the Grantee provide the DNR Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR will be provided both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee's final payment request. Any publications produced as part of the project will incorporate the "Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!" brand
