CRANBERRY LAKE/FLOWAGE ASSOCIATION: Cranberry Lake/Flowage Eurasian Watermilfoil Rapid Response 2009-2011


Cranberry Lake Association is sponsoring its second Aquatic Invasive Species Rapid Response (RR) project. The 2009-2011 project will monitor and manage a pioneering population of Eurasian watermilfoil scattered throughout the lake. Project activities include: 1) Seasonal and/or pre- and post-treatment aquatic plant monitoring 2) SCUBA and manual removal of Eurasian watermilfoil 3) Possible chemical treatments, under the guidance of WDNR 4) Completion of an Aquatic Plant Management Plan that follows the WDNR\2019s Aquatic Plant Management in Wisconsin guidance Project deliverables include: 1) An Aquatic Plant Management Plan 2) Summary report of monitoring and management activities, including aquatic plant survey spreadsheets This scope is intended to summarize the detailed project scope provided in the application and does not supersede those application tasks/deliverables. Data, records, and reports, including GIS-based maps and digital images, must be submitted to the Department in a format specified by the regional Lake Coordinator.

Reports and Documents
This aquatic plant management plan is developed for Cranberry Lake/Flowage for the management of aquatic plants. Eurasian water milfoil was discovered in Cranberry Lake in 2007. Since then, herbicide treatments and hand-pulling have been implemented to reduce the spread of this invasive plant. The development of this plan has been ongoing during this time. It will provide for an established plan that can be utilized in the future management of EWM, reduce the introduction of future AIS, and provide a plan should new AIS be introduced.
