LAKE RIPLEY MANAGEMENT DISTRICT: Lake Ripley Critical Habitat Phragmites Control


Lake Ripley Management District is sponsoring a project to control phragmites in a wetland adjacent to Lake Ripley, Jefferson County.

Project final deliverables include: A written report for educational purposes, showing the progression of treatments using collected photographs and narratives. Specific project activities include: 1) photo-document the phragmites and property-owner assessment of phragmites at the site, 2) establish a project team, 3) control the phragmites following the management plan (cutting and removal of existing biomass, timely treatments, and monitoring). This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. 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 Biologist. 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.
