Large Scale Lake Planning
The Lake Keesus Management District will hire a contractor to conduct a plant survey on Lake Keesus. The plant survey will be a point intercept survey with 471 points. The lake will be sampled in mid-summer. The project deliverables are a formal report which includes an introduction, methods, results (tables and graphs) and discussion as well as herbarium mounts of voucher specimens. Elements of the report include 1) Results of the point intercept survey - raw data; 2) Summary tables that list the plants found, # sites found, overall % frequency of occurrence, % relative frequency of occurrence, overall average density rating and relative average density rating; 3) A discussion (text) that explains what the results mean and an overall assessment of the plant community in the lake; 4) Point intercept maps for each exotic species and the top three to five native plants; 5) An aquatic plant management plan that meets the requirements of NR 109.09 and 6) Minutes from the one public meeting regarding the survey results and aquatic plant management plan.
