DEER LAKE CONSERVANCY INC: LMI-Nearing the Goal: Deer Lake Watershed Phosphorus Reduction

Purpose

Deer Lake Conservancy is sponsoring a project to design/build an iron/sand filter pond with pretreatment in a agriculture-dominated subwatershed (Watershed 1); continue the 2007 Direct Drainage best practices project to slow runoff and restore habitat; develop a land protection/conservation plan; promote community information and education. Watershed 1 pre-construction water quality data will be compared to post-construction data. Special conditions: The iron/sand filter pond and pretreatment practices shall be operated and maintained for a minimum of 10 years in accordance with the operation and maintenance (O&M) plan, which must be approved by the Department. A contract will specify the approved plans and be filed with the Register of Deeds. All enrolled shoreline restoration parcels require a Department-approved restrictive covenant that permanently establishes the parcel vegetative buffer. Restorations will follow NR 191.24(3) standards unless mutually agreed to in writing with the regional lake coordinator before implementation. Runoff BMPs such as rain gardens and infiltration trenches will have maintenance, operation, and protection plans specified in a ten-year contract for each BMP site. The Department may perform site inspection and/or monitoring. Project deliverables: pre/post site photos of implemented practices; pond engineering/design plans; copies of O&M plans and contracts; final shoreline restoration plans/maps and copies of deed restrictions if implementation is funded by the Department; land protection plan; educational materials developed; project summary report including water quality data comparison. This scope summarizes the detailed scope in the project application and does not supersede those application tasks/deliverables. 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.
