MENOMINEE COUNTY: Moshawquit Lake EWM Management Project


Menominee County proposes to control Eurasian Water-milfoil (EWM) in Moshawquit Lake by implementing control measures during the period 2010-2012. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Menominee County Aquatic Invasive Species Control Grant application, dated March 31,2010. The project includes conducting pre- and post-treatment surveys and mapping the extent of EWM, including a DNR approved Point Index survey; controlling EWM with aquatic herbicide treatments; and implementing an aquatic invasive species prevention strategy that includes developing an awareness & education program. 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 that 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 will be provided both paper and 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.

Eurasian watennilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) is an aquatic invasive species which is native to Europe and Asia and has caused significant ecological and economic problems in the U.S. This plant has the ability to form dense, impenetrable beds that inhibit boating, swimming and fishing. Eurasian watennilfoil begins growing earlier than native plants, which can give it a competitive advantage. The dense surface mats fonned by the plant block sunlight and can displace native submergent plants. Eurasian watenni!foil has also been found to reduce water quality in lakes by several means.
