Dane County Office of Lakes and Watersheds Invites Public Comment at Two Aquatic Plant Management Public Informational Meetings: March 20 and April 16, 2013


The Dane County Office of Lakes and Watersheds is updating aquatic plant management plans for waters across the county where county staff use mechanical harvesters to provide navigational access and improved water flow.  The county’s existing plans must be updated to reflect plant surveys conducted during the summers of 2011 and 2012.


For each of the meetings below, county staff and other aquatic plant experts will present information about recent plant survey results, review the goals and recommendations of current aquatic plant management plans (all available at http://danewaters.com/management/AquaticPlantManagement.aspx), and invite public comment on ideas for changes to existing plan goals and objectives, and observations about 2012 harvesting.
