MAIDEN LAKE CLUB, INC.: Maiden Lake EWM Control Project


The Maiden Lake Assn proposes to control Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) in Maiden Lake by implementing control measures during the period 2008-2010. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Assn's AIS control grant application, dated 12.1.2008. The project includes conducting pre- and post-treatment surveys and mapping the extent of EWM, including a full lake rake Point Index survey during EWM peak growing seasons, June-August; controlling EWM with aquatic herbicide treatments; and implementing an AIS prevention strategy that includes developing an information education program, and conducting watercraft inspection. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the three-year project will be provided to DNR. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database. Any publications produced as part of the project will incorporate the "Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!"tm brand (partnership details can be found at: If 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.

Reports and Documents
A survey was conducted on Maiden Lake on October 12, 2010 to assess the abundance and distribution of Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) as well as any other exotic species. Surface observations were used to determine the locations, and rake-tows were used to verify plant identification. Shoreline features were used to plot the areas on a map, and GPS coordinates were recorded at each location. Modified acreage grid analysis was used to determine the area of each plant bed.
