AMERY LAKES P & R DISTRICT: Pike Lake Eurasian Watermilfoil Rapid Response


Amery Lakes P&R District is sponsoring a three-year early detection and response project that will monitor and manage a pioneering population of Eurasian watermilfoil and inform and educate the local community. The project area includes North and South Twin Lakes, which are connected to Pike. Project activities include: 1) Point-intercept survey(s) and seasonal and/or pre- and post-treatment aquatic plant monitoring following guidelines provided by the Department; 2) Chemical treatment and/or SCUBA and manual removal of Eurasian watermilfoil ; 3) Information and education program. Special condition: WDNR\2019s Aquatic Plant Management in Wisconsin guidance should be followed for point-intercept survey monitoring, pre/post treatment monitoring, and aquatic plant management plan development unless otherwise approved by the Department. Project deliverables include: annual progress and final reports of monitoring and management activities, including aquatic plant survey spreadsheets and pre/post treatment monitoring, and any educational materials developed. This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. Data, records, reports, and education materials, including GIS-based maps and digital images, must be submitted to the Department in a format specified by the regional lake coordinator.
