Small Scale Lake Planning
The Elkhart Lake Improvement Association will hire a contractor to report results of an aquatic plant survey conducted in the summer of 2012 and to complete aquatic plant management plan for Big Elkhart Lake. The plant survey was a point intercept survey conducted by DNR staff with approximately 954 points. The final report will contain the following elements: 1) Results of the points sampled, including sediment type found and maximum rooting depth; 2) Results of the lake survey to map general plant beds, map localized plant beds, map species distribution, summary tables, and a list of plant species found; 3) Individual maps of species distribution for the top 5 native species found as well as Eurasian water milfoil and Curly Leaf Pondweed; and 4) An aquatic plant management plan for Eurasian water milfoil in Sheboygan Bay.
