Boot Lake Improvement Association Purchases Equipment and Service to Map the Vegation and Monitor the Health of Boot Lake

The Ci BioBase System was developed to provide automated cloud based mapping and historical trend tools for aquatic analysis. This is accomplished with powerful yet inexpensive data recording tools and dynamic centralized analytic and lake mapping tools. CI BioBase leverages log file formats recorded to SD cards using today’s Lowrance™ brand depth finders and chart plotters.
Each subscriber to the BioBase System can collect acoustic data, upload it to a BioBase account, and automatically produce vegetation abundance and bathymetric maps

Monitoring Results from

Zebra Mussel Platforms on Boot Lake

(Boot Lake had 3 traps in 2012)

I wanted to check in with you and see how things are going this winter and to provide some information.

I have gotten the results from the ZM (zebra mussels) monitoring this summer.  We monitored 13 lakes and all came back negative for ZM.  The other lakes that we tested were: White Lake, Round Lake, Townsend Flowage, Berry Lake, Boulder Lake, Boundary Lake, Bear Paw Lake, Grindle Lake, Boot Lake, Wheeler Lake, Paya Lake, and Kelly Lake.  In Oconto County there is known ZM in the Oconto River, Lake Michigan, and the Machickanee Flowage. 

Here is a link to all the known AIS in the state of WI:

You can search by county or throughout the state.  Hope this proves helpful, please pass onto others whom you believe would be interested from your lake.

Enjoy the snow!
