Large Scale Lake Planning
Poskin Lake Association is sponsoring a three-phase project to assess watershed, water quality, shoreline, and aquatic plant conditions; determine nutrient loads and model lake response; develop watercraft inspection and AIS monitoring programs; distribute and analyze a sociological survey; coordinate stakeholder participation and planning; and develop a lake management implementation plan. The final deliverable will be a single lake management plan that includes methodologies, results, and management alternatives discussion with an implementation plan. Interim deliverables for each phase include a progress report with results, including maps, spreadsheets, and other data collected during the given phase.
The specific Phase 1 (LPL-1270-09) project tasks include: 1) Expanded water quality monitoring at three lake sites, including purchase of a dissolved oxygen meter; 2) Water quality and flow monitoring on Vermillion River; 3) Lake user education, including implementation of Clean Boats Clean Waters and AIS monitoring; 4) Sociological survey of riparians and local community.
