BALSAM LAKE P & R DISTRICT: Balsam Lake Aquatic Invasive Species Education & Planning


The Balsam Lake P&R District is sponsoring an AIS project including a Clean Boat/Clean Water inspection program at 4 boat landings, public education, maintenance of landing information signs, lake surveillance, and development of an Aquatic Plant Management Plan (APMP). Deliverables include: 1) Watercraft inspection report including time and number of people reached; CB/CW survey results; 2) daily results entered into the DNR CB/CW database; 3) Verification of workshops and/or inspector training such as agendas and attendance lists; 4) Copies of educational materials distributed to the public such as brochures, newsletters, mailings, etc., and agenda or summary of presentations made at Annual Meetings; 5) Report on Waterfront Property Owners Survey; 6) Report on aquatic plant sampling/survey results including boat and shoreline monitoring observations of any detected aquatic invasive species with appropriate maps; 7) Report on construction/maintenance of signage; 8) Completed copy of the APMP for Balsam Lake; 9) AIS related materials generated or paid for by this grant. Special conditions: 1) Draft public surveys methods must be reviewed and approved by the Department before being initiated; 2) The DNR shall be contacted immediately in the event of a new aquatic invasive species infestation. This scope summarizes the project detail in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. Data, records, and reports, including GIS-based maps and digital images, must be submitted to the Department in a format specified by the AIS Coordinator. It is recommended that Grantee provide AIS Coordinator with a draft Aquatic Plant Management Plan prior to making final payment to the consultant. The DNR shall receive a paper and electronic copy of the final report.
