Aquatic Invasives Grant
Aquatic Invasives Control
The summer harvesting season of 2013 was a continuation in the Hydraulic Conveyor SystemÂs (HCS) program development, building upon the strong operational base established in the initial summer of HCS operation in 2009. Continued refinement of operational protocols has taken place over its years of operation, but the overall goal of the HCS continues to be for the purposes that it was designed for; removing new, previously undiscovered points of infestation of EWM. It is by removing these newly discovered infestation sites that the goal of stopping or greatly reducing the spread of EWM before it becomes established may be realized.
In January of 2013, the Tomahawk Lake Association Incorporated (TLA) of Oneida County made application to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for a two-year cost-sharing AIS control grant. The primary problem that was addressed within the grant application was the control and reduction of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS), and more specifically Eurasian Water Milfoil in the Tomahawk Lake watershed. The grant application closely followed the recommendations spelled out in the Tomahawk Lake Comprehensive Lake Management Plan (CLMP) approved by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in 2009.
