NORTH LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT: Grant B: Wave Propagation Differences Among Powered Vessels


The North Lake Management District is sponsoring a project to study the impact of boat wake propagation (amplitude, frequency and origin) on shorelines and lake sediment. Project final deliverables include: a whitepaper research report, and excel spreadsheets containing all data collected for the study. Specific project activities include: 1) Measurement of sediment plumes caused by boat wakes; 2) Collection of water clarity and dissolved oxygen at 6 sites twice a week in the summer of 2021; 3) Collection of TSS and Total Phosphorus samples twice a week from May through September and 4) aquatic plant sampling. Special Conditions: 1) All data shall be entered into the SWIMS database; 2) Grantee shall use the Wisconsin State Lab of Hygeine for water sample analyses. 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.
