The project includes conducting a spring pre-treatment survey and a summer peak biomass post-treatment survey in 2013 and 2014 by a third-party consultant using the DNR Aquatic Plant Treatment Evaluation Protocol htpp:/ controlling Eurasian Watermilfoil with aquatic herbicide treatments; and implementing an aquatic invasive species prevention and control strategy that includes attending the WI Lakes Convention, AIS surveillance and hand pulling. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the three-year project will be provided to DNR. Any publications produced as part of the project will incorporate the \201CStop Aquatic Hitchhikers!\201D brand (partnership details can be found at If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended that the Grantee provide the DNR Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant.

Reports and Documents
2014 EWM control had mixed results, but EWM population has not rebounded since 2013 herbicide treatment. Due to low levels of EWM in the waters of Kelly Lake, it is recommended that hand harvesting be used for removal of EWM and not herbicide treatment.
