Large Scale Lake Planning
This document provides revisions to Goal 6: Maintain Diverse Native Plant Communities (pg 60) relating to aquatic invasive species management and Appendix E Aquatic Plant Assessment and Management Plan relating to management of existing invasive species. Furthermore, this document sets an adaptive framework for making aquatic invasive management decisions, and updates existing Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM) conditions for Big Lake.
Cisco Chain Riparian Owners Association is sponsoring a large scale lake planning grant to study Big Lake, in Vilas County. The project will focus on developing a Lake Management Plan (LMP) for Big Lake.
Project activities include: 1) Stakeholder participation \2013 stakeholder survey, planning meetings (2-4), kick-off meeting, wrap-up meeting, news release(s), and newsletter article; 2) Summarize ongoing lake management work; 3) Water quality sampling and analysis; 4) Watershed assessment and nutrient load modeling; 5) Characterize biological communities and ecosystem interactions; 6) Shoreline assessment; 7) Aquatic plant surveys (PI survey, community mapping, and substrate mapping); 8) Data analysis; 9) Volunteer watercraft inspections; 10) Develop LMP.
