PurposeGilmore Lake Association is sponsoring a three-year early detection and response project that will monitor and manage a pioneering population of Eurasian watermilfoil and inform and educate the local community.
Project activities include: 1) Fall 2009 rapid assessment EWM point-intercept survey and summer 2010 whole-lake point-intercept survey of all aquatic plants; 2) Seasonal and/or pre- and post-treatment aquatic plant monitoring following guidelines provided by the Department; 3) Chemical treatment and/or SCUBA and manual removal of Eurasian watermilfoil; 4) Information and education program, including watercraft inspection
Special condition: WDNR\2019s Aquatic Plant Management in Wisconsin guidance should be followed for point-intercept survey monitoring, pre/post treatment monitoring, and aquatic plant management plan development unless otherwise approved by the Department.
Project deliverables include: annual progress and final reports of monitoring and management activities, including aquatic plant survey spreadsheets and pre/post treatment monitoring, and any educational materials developed. Watercraft inspection data should be entered into SWIMS.
This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. Data, records, reports, and education materials, including GIS-based maps and digital images, must be submitted to the Department in a format specified by the regional lake coordinator.
