Large Scale Lake Planning
Crab Lake has a native aquatic plant community that was documented by a point-intercept aquatic plant survey. This plant community is essential to, and part of, a high quality aquatic ecosystem that benefits the human community with its recreational and aesthetic features. The purpose of this aquatic plant management plan is to maintain the aquatic plant community in its present high quality state.
The Town of Presque Isle Lakes Committee is sponsoring a large scale lake planning grant to study Crab Lake, in Vilas County. Crab Lake Property Owners Association is a project partner. The project will focus on updating a Lake Management Plan (LMP) for Crab Lake.
Project activities include: 1) Gather and assess existing Crab Lake information; 2) PI aquatic plant survey, community and substrate mapping and analysis; 3) CLMN water quality sampling; 4) Educational program \2013 meetings, newsletter articles, and press releases; 5) Watercraft inspections and AIS monitoring.
Project deliverables include: 1) LMP; 2) PI and water quality data; 3) Aquatic plant community and substrate maps; 4) Entered inspection data into SWIMS; 5) Aquatic plant vouchers; 6) Education materials.
