ROUND TRADE LAKE IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION: Trade Lakes Eurasian Watermilfoil Early Detection & Response Project


Round-Trade Lake Improvement Association, Inc. is sponsoring a four-year early detection and response project that will monitor and manage a pioneering population of Eurasian watermilfoil in Trade Lake and develop a management plan for Trade Lake and lakes (Round and Long Trade) upstream in the Trade River system. Project activities include: 1) Pre- and post-treatment aquatic plant monitoring following guidelines provided by the Department on Trade Lake and possibly other lakes with prior Department approval; 2) Chemical treatment and/or SCUBA and manual removal of Eurasian watermilfoil on Trade Lake only; 3) Aquatic Plant Management Plan for Trade Lake that also addresses upstream aquatic invasive species sources and management in Round and Long Trade Lakes. 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 of monitoring and management activities, including aquatic plant survey spreadsheets and pre/post treatment monitoring, and any educational materials developed. Aquatic Plant Management for Trade Lake (minimum) or all lakes in the Trade River system (recommended). 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.
