A technical survey of aquatic plant density and distribution is essential for understanding the lake ecosystem due to the major ecological role they play and the sensitivity to water quality parameters that plants require (Dennison et al, 1993). The quantitative survey performed in 2014 will provide some useful information toward future management of Blass Lake, including fish habitat improvement, sensitive species protection, aquatic plant management, and water resource related issues.

The Village of Lake Delton proposes to update the Blass Lake APM plan by following current lakes partnership guidance. A summer plant survey will be conducted, voucher specimens of plant species present will be preserved, and management options reviewed with the public, including costs, benefits and drawbacks. Final recommendations will be presented in the plan, and the plan will be made available at the local library and presented at an organized public lake meeting.
