Good Afternoon Everyone,

Attached is the Oneida County AIS Newsletter, which includes upcoming workshops and AIS events, and gives you a peek of what we’ve been up to this summer. Please share with you lake association.

The AIS Team has been busy in the field this summer with all sorts of outreach and proactive activities. One of our many field activities that we do is lake monitoring, which involves obtaining baseline water quality data and canoeing the shoreline/littoral zone in search of AIS.  The data we collect is written into a lake monitoring report as well as entered into SWIMS (Surface Water Integrated Monitoring System), a Wisconsin DNR information system that holds chemistry (water, sediment), physical, and biological (macroinvertebrate, aquatic invasives) data.  This year, the AIS Team monitored the following lakes: Echo Lake, Emma Lake, Bass Lake, Two Lakes North, Lake George, DL Lake, and Soo Lake, Little Carr Lake.  Landing only AIS Checks include the following boat landings: Buckskin, Kawaguesaga (at the dam), Squaw, Squirrel (Kobart Rd), Lake Nokomis (hwy N), and Crescent.  I’ve attached our Emma Lake Monitoring Report and as our busy season winds down, I will send out the rest of lake monitoring reports.

Enjoy the day,
