CHUTE LAKE P & R DISTRICT: Chute Pond EWM Control Project

Purpose

The Chute Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District proposes to control Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) in Chute Lake by implementing control measures during the period 2008. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Chute Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District's Aquatic Invasive Species Rapid Response Grant application, dated June 25, 2008. The project includes conducting pre- and post-treatment surveys and mapping the extent of EWM; controlling EWM with aquatic herbicide treatments; and implementing an aquatic invasive species prevention strategy that includes developing an information & education program that entails two educational newsletters and press releases via Chute Lake's personal website. In addition, at the district's annual meeting CBCW volunteers will be solicited. A final report summarizing the one-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.

Reports and Documents
In the summer of 2007 Northern Environmental technologies, Inc. surveyed Chute Pond and found both Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) and curly-leaf pondweed (Potamogeton crispus). Neither of these species had been documented in Chute Pond prior to 2007. On May 15, 2008, Cason & Associates staff surveyed Chute Pond to map the distribution of exotics. Results of this survey indicated that nearly 53 acres of curlyleaf pondweed and approximately nine acres of Eurasian watermilfoil were growing in the lake at the time of the survey.
