LOON LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT: Loon Lake Unique Hybrid Milfoil Management Project


The Loon Lake \2013 Wescott Management District proposes to control Hybrid Eurasian Watermilfoil (HEWM) through chemical treatment, mechanical and hand removal, and preventative measures in Loon Lake during the period 2010 - 2012. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Loon Lake Wescott Management District\2019s Aquatic Invasive Species Grant application, dated January 25, 2010. The project includes monitoring the extent and density of HEWM annually through pre-treatment and post-treatment surveys; treating HEWM infested areas with an aquatic herbicide; conducting hand-removal of HEWM; conducting water quality monitoring; and conducting volunteer activities to prevent further AIS infestations, including conducting watercraft inspections. A refresher course for the Clean Boats Clean Waters program and the Citizen Lake Monitoring Network will be taken to ensure the distribution of updated AIS information to boaters. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State\2019s online Watercraft Inspection Database. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the three-year project will be provided to DNR. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended the Grantee provide the DNR Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee\2019s final payment request.
