BAYFIELD COUNTY: Iron River and Delta Area Lakes Restoration Project

Purpose

Bayfield Co. is sponsoring a lakewide restoration project in the Iron River, Delta area lakes with emphasis on the Pike Chain including shoreline restorations; runoff and infiltration best management practices (BMPs); in-lake habitat improvement; technical/implementation assistance; BMP cost-share assistance; enrollment payments; promotion and education. The goal is to restore 3500 feet of shoreline frontage. County-owned Twin Bear Park will be a demonstration site with shoreline and in-lake habitat restoration, campsite consolidations and removal of impervious areas and structures within the buffer. All shoreline restorations using grant funds for implementation must have a Department approved restrictive covenant on the parcel that permanently establishes the vegetative buffer. Restorations will follow NR 191.24(3) standards unless mutually agreed to in writing with the regional lake coordinator before implementation. Parcels with runoff/infiltration BMPs other than shoreline restoration will have a maintenance, operation, and protection plan specified in a ten-year contract. Project deliverables include: project accomplishment/challenges summary; final shoreline restoration plans/maps for sites where implementation is partially or entirely funded by the Department; pre/post photos of funded restorations; list of property owners and parcels where restrictive covenants have been filed or copies of filed covenants; and examples of educational materials developed. Special conditions: covenant language needs approval before project begins, and applicable water regulation permits must be issued before construction activities commence. 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.
