BURNETT COUNTY LAND CONSERVATION DEPARTMENT: RES-Burnett Co Shoreline Incentives Program

Purpose

Burnett County LWCD will continue its county-wide Shoreline Incentives Program started in 2000. Technical assistance; restoration cost-share assistance; promotion and education; survey/evaluation; recognition activities; and tax rebate payments are included in the program. All enrolled shoreline restoration parcels require a Department approved restrictive covenant that permanently establishes the vegetative buffer on the parcel. The program includes storm water BMPs such as rain gardens and infiltration trenches. Maintenance, operation, and protection will be specified in a 10-year contract for each BMP site. This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. Project Deliverables \2013 Final shoreline restoration plans/maps for sites where implementation is funded by the Department; pre/post photos of funded restorations; list of property owners and parcels committed to restrictive covenants or copies of signed covenants; project accomplishment/challenges summary; educational materials developed; and evaluation and survey results, including purple loosestrife inventory maps. Special Conditions - Restorations will follow standards set forth in NR 191.24(3) unless mutually agreed to in writing with the regional lake coordinator before implementation occurs. The Department may perform site inspections and/or monitoring. If consultant is to provide final report, it is recommended that Grantee provide DNR Lake 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.
