BEECHER LAKE PROTECTION & REHAB DISTRICT: Beecher Lake AIS Education & Prevention Project


The Beecher Lake District proposes to develop an Aquatic Plant Management (APM) Plan for the periods of 2008-2009, which will focus on native plant protection and prevention, and control of aquatic invasive species (AIS). The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Beecher Lake District's Invasive Species Control Grant application, dated January 30, 2008. The project includes using aquatic plant survey data generated by WDNR staff; determining the extent, distribution and density of Eurasian water-milfoil and any other AIS; preparing and developing an APM Plan consistent with DNR guidelines, including an AIS prevention and control plan; educating lake users of native plant protection and AIS prevention and control measures. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the two-year project will be provided to DNR. The final report will include Beecher Lake District's Aquatic Plant Management Plan that conforms to guidance found in the DNR/UW-Extension publication, "Aquatic Plant Management in Wisconsin". If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended 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 to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee's final payment request.
