SAND LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT: Sand & Little Sand Lake Aquatic Plant/Lake Mgt. & Education Project


Sand Lake Management District is sponsoring project to complete a comprehensive lake management plan with an aquatic plant emphasis for Sand and Little Sand Lakes. The final deliverable will be a single lake management plan that includes methodologies, results, and management alternatives discussion with an implementation plan. The specific project tasks include: 1) Spring and summer aquatic plant point-intercept surveys on both lakes and Eurasian watermilfoil bed mapping on Sand Lake; 2) Expanded water quality monitoring on both lakes and DO/temp meter purchase; 3) Shoreline inventory survey and determining corresponding near-shore runoff coefficients; 4) Watershed evaluation in partnership with Barron County SWCD; 5) Lake user education, including implementation of Clean Boats Clean Waters, AIS monitoring, a lake fair, and new boat landing signage; 6) Sociological survey of riparians and local community. Special Conditions: 1) WDNR\2019s Aquatic Plant Management in Wisconsin guidance should be followed for point-intercept survey monitoring and aquatic plant management plan development; 2) Draft public surveys and shoreline inventory methods must be reviewed and approved by the Department before being initiated. This scope summarizes the project detail provided 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 regional Lake Coordinator.
