PHILLIPS CHAIN O'LAKES ASSOC: Phillips Chain AIS Control & Preservation Project - Implementation Phase 1


The Phillips Chain of Lakes Association is sponsoring an AIS control project. In recent years Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM) has infested the Chain, and negatively affected the native vegetation species and has degraded the general ability for residents and tourists to enjoy the lakes. The lake association completed an Aquatic Plant management Plan in 2011. This control grant implements recommendations listed in the approved plan including a whole lake chemical treatment on Wilson Flowage. Project goals includes: 1) Wilson lake Point-Intercept Survey( Summer 2012); 2) Whole Lake EWM herbicide treatment on Wilson Lake; 3) Spot EWM Treatment on Long and Duroy Lakes; 4) EWM peak biomass surveys; 5) Pre/Post evaluation monitoring; 6) Residual 2, 4-D sampling; 7) Clean Boats Clean Waters monitoring Program; 8) Purple loosestrife Control program. Project deliverables include: A final report discussing the results of the surveys and recommended treatment strategies for 2013. Specific conditions for this Project: 1) The WDNR will be provided electronic and hard copies of all data and or reports/plans generated as a result of this project; 2) Make sure lake association members are informed about this project; 3) Provide hard copy of point intercept data in proper spreadsheet format.
