BURNETT COUNTY LAND CONSERVATION DEPARTMENT: Burnett County AIS Prevention & Education

Purpose

Burnett Co. is sponsoring an AIS project and position to do the following activities: education/outreach at public events & meetings; baseline monitoring & mapping of Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM), purple loosestrife, & other AIS; CBCW training & watercraft inspections; developing prevention, rapid response & APM plans; technical support for rapid response projects; purple loosestrife control program. If a new AIS infestation is found, the Dept. & County will work with the respective lake group to develop a rapid response plan &/or an AIS plan that meets the requirements of NR 198.43. APM plans for established infestations should use the Aquatic Plant Management in WI guidance & meet the NR 198.43 requirements. Deliverables include: 1) Project report/assessment of education/outreach activities inlcuding examples of materials developed, monitoring activities, & data collected, including descriptions of the extent of AIS in the County, control measure details, prevention & AIS plans, & information in 2-9; 2) Baseline data (species, GPS locations, estimated infestation size) & GIS maps of EWM, purple loosestrife, & AIS populations; 3) Aquatic plant survey results (i.e. point-intercept method); 4) Purple loosestrife release site locations & management summary; 5) CBCW data summary. Data collected to include data required by the CBCW program & entered in the statewide database; 6) County-wide resource list, including lake contacts, monitors, volunteers, presentations, etc; 7) APM plans; 8) Waterfront property owner packet; 9) Countywide AIS prevention & control strategy. Special Conditions: 1) Newly identified AIS must immediately be reported to the Dept.; 2) The Dept. may provide methods for AIS monitoring; 3) Data, records, & reports, including GIS-based maps & digital images, must be submitted to the Dept. in a format specified by the Lake Coordinator. This scope summarizes the grant application scope & does not supersede grant application specifics.

Knowing that Eurasian water milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) is found in several lakes in Burnett and Washburn County, concerned members of the Middle and Big McKenzie Lake Association authorized an extensive assessment of Middle and Big McKenzie Lake aquatic macrophytes using the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources statewide guidelines for conducting systematic point intercept macrophyte sampling. This Aquatic Plant Management Plan for Middle and Big McKenzie Lake presents a strategy for managing aquatic plants by protecting native plant populations and preventing the establishment of invasive species. The plan includes data about the plant community, watershed, and water quality, as well as other non plant species. Based on this data and public input, goals and strategies for the sound management of aquatic plants in Middle and Big McKenzie Lake are presented. This plan will guide the Middle and Big McKenzie Lake Association, Burnett County, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in aquatic plant management for Middle and Big McKenzie Lake over the next five years (from 2012 through 2017).
