5.4 Monitoring and Data Collection

Hydrologic Data Program

To monitor progress toward meeting water quality and quantity goals, monitoring of Schutz Lake will continue to be a part of the District's annual program.

Aquatic Vegetation

Lake aquatic plant monitoring provides information needed to manage aquatic plants, evaluate control measures, and plan for future actions.  This monitoring is especially useful as water quality management activities are implemented and plant communities change in response to changing water quality.  A baseline aquatic vegetation and shoreline survey will be conducted and an aquatic vegetation management plan developed.  The estimated cost of preparing this plant is $10,000.  The survey will be updated by staff/contractor every five years at an estimated cost of $7,000.  Interim monitoring could be conducted by trained volunteers.
