Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Grant
Monitor Fish Community
The Berry Lake Property Owners Association proposes to create a Comprehensive Management Plan for Berry Lake by during the period 2014-2016. The project elements and deliverables are specified in the Berry Lake Property Owners Association\2019s Grant application, dated January 1, 2014.
The project will produce; the drainage area definition (watershed) for the lake; the potential point-sources of pollution that may be affecting the lake; the areas of the lake\2019s watershed that may be supplying excessive amounts of sediment and nutrients; a determination of plant community diversity for the lake and how the lake\2019s diversity compares with other lakes in the region; an identification and location of important plant communities (emergent, submergent, floating-leaf) within the lake and a listing of the dominant species within those communities; the identification and location of any rare or threatened plant species within the lake; a determination of where exotic plant species occur in and around the lake; abundance of plant species relative to each other; a summary and analysis of specific chemicals found in the lake, how these concentrations compare with other lakes in the region, and what these concentrations indicate concerning the health of the lake; an analysis of the limiting plant nutrient in the lake; the trophic state of the lake; an analysis of condition within the lake prior to settlement; an analysis of aquatic plant management alternatives; a summary of recent historic fisheries data, biological information relating to specific fish species, an how it applies to the management plan.
