POWERS LAKE PROTECTION AND REHAB. DISTRICT: Powers Lake AIS Management

Purpose

The Powers Lake Protection & Rehabilitation District will implement a three year aquatic chemical treatment plan. The goal of the plan is to greatly reduce the frequency of occurrence of Eurasian water milfoil, an established aquatic invasive plant and to eliminate the pioneer infestation of Curly Leaf Pondweed. Chemical treatment will take place in late April or early May of 2010, 2011 and 2012. Point intercept plant surveys (following the established WDNR Hauxwell protocols) will be conducted both pre and post chemical treatment. Chemical treatment areas will be determined each year based on the previous year\2019s plant surveys. The project deliverable is a report that includes 1) all raw plant survey data; 2) maps of proposed and actual treatment areas each year; 3) density/distribution maps for EWM, CLP and the top five native plants found each year in the plant surveys; 4) statistical analysis of the plant survey data each year and a comparison between years, to include frequency of occurrence, actual density, relative density, etc as described in the Hauxwell protocol; 5) a written assessment of the success of the chemical treatment plan implementation; 6) a written assessment of the shifts in the plant community over the three years of the project and 7) recommendations for future management.
