TOWN OF SCANDINAVIA: Town of Scandinavia AIS Rapid Response Project


The Town of Scandinavia proposes to control Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) in Brekke Lake by implementing control measures during the period 2009-2011. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Town's Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Control Grant application dated 12.22.08. The project includes conducting pre- and post-treatment surveys and mapping the extent of EWM, including a full lake rake Point Index survey during peak EWM growing seasons of June-August 2009-2011; controling EWM with aquatic herbicide treatments; and implementing an AIS prevention strategy that includes developing an awarementss and education program, and conducting watercraft inspections. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the 3 year project will be provided to the DNR. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database. If a consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended that the Grantee provide the DNR AIS 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. Any publications producted as part of the project will incorporate the "Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!" Brand.
