Large Scale Lake Planning
Long Lake P&R District is sponsoring a project to assess watershed, water quality, plankton, algae, and shoreline conditions; determine nutrient loads, budget, and model lake response; distribute and analyze a sociological survey; develop a lake management plan including public participation/meetings.
The specific project tasks include: 1. Expanded water quality monitoring including spring and fall overturn; 2. Lake sediment sampling; 3. Tributary water quality and flow monitoring; 4. Plankton and algae assessment including toxicity analysis; 5. Shoreline assessment and restoration workshop; 6. Shoreline soil samples; 7. Watershed delineation and modeling; 8. Sociological survey; 9. Lake management plan development including public participation/meeting.
The final deliverables include examples of education materials developed; agenda or attendance lists for workshops, planning meetings, and education events; and a single lake management plan that includes methodologies, results, and management alternatives discussion with an implementation plan that is approvable for Lake Protection Grant eligibility.
