Comprehensive Planning Studies
Lake Management Plan Development
Pickerel Crane P&R District is sponsoring large scale lake planning grants to study Pickerel and Crane Lakes in Forest County. The project will focus on developing a Lake Management Plan (LMP) for Pickerel and Crane Lakes that will include an AIS control plan and a native mechanical harvesting plan. Completion of a LMP will allow for potential Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) cost sharing grants and permits for Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) control.
Project activities include: 1) Stakeholder participation - kick-off meeting, AIS training, 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, Alkalinity, 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) Zebra mussel monitoring; 10) Develop LMP (with AIS control and harvesting components).
Project deliverables for phase 2 include: 1) Aquatic plant community data and maps; 2) Completed entry of inspection Forms 3200-120 and monitoring Forms 3200-124 onto Dept website.
WDNR Lakes Management Coordinator will be provided with an electronic (pdf or word) and hard copy of LMP, news release, newsletter article, progress report, data and modeling from watershed assessment, all GIS data, and all maps from project.
