RICE LAKE P & R DISTRICT: Rice Lake Management Plan

Purpose

Rice Lake P&R District, in partnership with Barron County, is sponsoring a project to assess watershed, water quality, and aquatic plant conditions; coordinate stakeholder participation and planning; create and implement an information and education program; and develop a lake management implementation plan with an emphasis on aquatic plants. Final deliverables include a management and implementation plan that includes the results of the tasks below. Tasks include: 1) Sociological/community survey and public participation/planning meetings; 2) Early season Curlyleaf pondweed survey and summer point-intercept survey of all plants with two sets of vouchers; 3) Shoreline survey; 4) Watercraft survey to identify and map travel corridors; 5) Review and inclusion of previous water quality studies (i.e. Army Corps of Engineers, Barron Co., and WDNR); 6) Watershed mapping and land use identification with loading calculations; 7) Storm sewer mapping and loading calculations; 8) Creation of a Clean Boats Clean Waters program; 9) Information and education program, including shoreline demonstration project and wildlife surveys; 10) Review and inclusion of sensitive area study with update recommendations. Special Conditions: 1) WDNR's Aquatic Plant Management in Wisc. guidance to be followed for point-intercept survey monitoring and aquatic plant management plan development; 2) The WDNR Aquatic Plant Management Strategy (2007) will be utilized in Plan development; 3) Draft public surveys must be reviewed and approved by DNR before use. This scope summarizes the application project scope and does not supersede those application tasks/deliverables. 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. Grantee or consultant will provide DNR Lake Coordinator with a draft report for comment on adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant.
