WAUPACA CHAIN O'LAKES PUBLIC INLAND LAKE P&R: Waupaca Chain O'Lakes AIS Treatment & Education Project

Purpose

The Waupaca Chain O\2019 Lakes Protection & Rehab District (the District) proposes to control curly-leaf pondweed (CLP), Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) through chemical treatment & preventative measures in the Waupaca Chain O\2019 Lakes (the Chain) during the period 2010-14. Proposed purple loosestrife (PL) control will employ Galerucella spp. beetles as a biological control agent. The project elements & deliverables are specified in the District\2019s AIS Control Grant Application, dated 7.28.09. The project includes conducting annual pre-treatment & post-treatment surveys to monitor the extent of CLP, EWM, & PL to determine efficacy of treatments, treating CLP & EWM infested areas with aquatic herbicides, & continuing education & prevention activities, including Citizen Lake Monitoring (CLMN), Clean Boats Clean Waters (CBCW), and native shoreline restoration. A report on AIS will be provided when docks, boats, & boat lifts are removed in the fall. All watercraft inspection data collected during CBCW & CLMN activities will be entered into the state\2019s online Surface Water Integrated Management System. The Department requests that the CBCW coordinator for the District attend a CBCW training session within the next calendar year as a refresher to the protocol & introduction of any new invasive species that may have arrived after the coordinator was last trained. Annual progress reports & a final report summarizing the five year project will be provided to the Dept. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended that the Grantee provide the Dept AIS Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. The Dept will be provided both paper & electronic PDF copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee\2019s final payment request. Any publications produced as part of the project will incorporate the \201CStop Aquatic Hitchhikers!\201D\2122 brand.
