BURNETT COUNTY LAND CONSERVATION DEPARTMENT: RES-Burnett County Shoreland Incentives 2011 - 2012

Purpose

Burnett County LWCD will continue its county-wide Shoreline Incentives Program. Technical assistance; restoration cost-share assistance; promotion and education; development of volunteer watering crews; recognition activities; and enrollment payments are included in the program. The County will provide an annual tax credit to enrolled participants. All enrolled shoreline restoration parcels require a Department approved restrictive covenant that permanently establishes the vegetative buffer on the parcel. Restorations will follow standards set forth in NR 191.24(3) unless mutually agreed to in writing with the regional lake coordinator before implementation occurs. The program includes storm water BMPs such as rain gardens and infiltration trenches. Maintenance, operation, and protection will be specified in a ten-year contract for each BMP site. The Department may perform site inspection and/or monitoring. Project deliverables include: final shoreline restoration plans/maps for sites where implementation is funded by the Department; pre/post photos of funded restorations; list of property owners and parcels committed to restrictive covenants or copies of signed covenants; project accomplishment/challenges summary; educational materials developed; and survey results. 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.
