Small Scale Lake Planning
The Lumberjack RC&D is sponsoring a project involving purchase of a dissolved oxygen meter. Long term Dissolved oxygen monitoring will take place on lakes in Forest County. The meter will be housed in the Forest Service office in Laona. It can be checked out and use in area lakes. John Preuss (AIS Specialist) will maintain the meter.
The project includes the following goals: 1) More efficient and less time consuming for volunteer; 2) Allow for accurate testing of DO at more frequent intervals to develop a more comprehensive profile; 3) Determine if lakes stratify (help determining dose for chemical treatments); 4) Monitor for winter DO levels (fish kill potential); 5) Share the meter for use in different lakes; 6) Help evaluate two-story fishery lakes.
