3.4 Ecological Integrity

  1. Wetland and associated upland areas with high ecological value are present and should be conserved and connected to provide wildlife corridors.  Figure 19 identifies an ecological corridor through the central subwatershed which should be preserved through District efforts as well as local planning.
  2. The Schutz Lake fishery has not been surveyed since 1991.  That survey should be updated to better evaluate the fishery and how it is impacted by water quality.
  3. No detailed information is available on aquatic vegetation in Schutz Lake.
