Small Scale Lake Planning
1. A comprehensive intercept survey will be conducted (343 locations) according to established DNR protocols (WDNR Pub-SS-1068 2010). Spatial distribution maps will be created for individual plant plant species. Also, littoral frequency and relative frequency of occurrence will be calculated for each species indentified in the lake. Lastly, a FQA comparison of the plant assemblages of Wood Lake to other lakes in the same eco-region will be made.
2. Native and exotic plant communities will be mapped within the lake using sub-meter GPS mapping. Specific plant community types and dominant plant species will be illustrated on bathymetric map.
3. A single report summarizing the findings of this study will be created.
4. One meeting will be held with lake stakeholders to discuss the findings of this study. Remedial and other management options will be discussed with the same stakeholders.
