Large Scale Lake Planning
Lac Vieux Desert Lake Association is sponsoring project to study Lac Vieux Desert Lake in Vilas County. The project will focus on developing a Lake Management Plan (LMP) for Lac Vieux Desert Lake. Completion of a LMP will allow for potential Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) cost sharing grants and permits for Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) control. Phases 1 and 2 were funded in this grant cycle (Feb 2009) and Phase 3 will be submitted for funding in August 2009.
Project activities include: 1) Stakeholder participation - kick-off meeting, AIS training, stakeholder survey, planning meetings (up to 2), wrap-up meeting, news release, newsletter article, and progress report; 2)Recruit volunteers and implement a CB/CW program; 3) Annual volunteer AIS monitoring; 4) Water quality sampling (secchi, P, Chla, N, conductivity, pH, total Alk, total suspended solids, calcium, DO, and temp); 5) Curly-leaf pondweed (CLP) survey and aquatic plant community mapping; 6) Sensitive area delineation; 7)Fisheries assessment; 8)Watershed assessment and P load modeling; 9) Develop LMP.
