PurposeThe Winnebago Lakes Council proposes to implement the comprehensive plan designed in phase I for preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) into and from the Winnebago Pool (Lakes Winnebago, Butte des Morts, Winneconne and Poygan) during the period 2009-2010. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Winnebago Lake Council's Aquatic Invasive Species grant application, dated January 30, 2009. The project includes; finalizing the regional AIS plan; continuing the "Clean Boats, Clean Waters" inspection program, including hiring an intern watercraft inspector, an intern coordinator and a project coordinator; and hosting a two day educational workshop aimed at local policy makers and waterfront property owners. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the two-year project will be provided to the DNR. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended the grantee provide the DNR Aquatic invasive Species Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee's final payment request.
