POLK COUNTY LWRD: Wild Goose Lake Water Quality & Biological Monitoring

Purpose

The Polk County Land and Water Resources Department is completing a second appraisal study and report on Wild Goose Lake. This project will compare results to the 2003 appraisal project. Project activities include: water quality trend monitoring; phytoplankton and zooplankton community snapshots; macrophyte point-intercept monitoring and mapping; macroinvertebrate assessment; lake level and precipitation monitoring; and watershed mapping and WiLMS modeling. The final deliverable for this project will be a compilation of results from the various studies and a comprehensive report with specific management recommendations. Historic monitoring data, including Citizen Lake Monitoring Network information, must be included in the trends analyses. The draft report must be submitted to regional Lake Coordinator for review before finalization. This scope is intended to summarize the detailed scope provided in the grant application and does not supersede grant application specifics. 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.
