If you need information on your lake’s aquatic plant community as part of a weed harvesting program, herbicide treatment program, exotic plant monitoring program or simply to assess the ecological health of your lake, Cason & Associates has the tools and expertise to get the job done. We use a reproducible point intercept survey method developed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources so that long-term changes can be accurately assessed and data can be readily compared from lake to lake. We can also custom-tailor a survey method to collect more detailed information for challenging environments such as lake shorelines, wetlands and boat channel complexes. Our GPS / GIS mapping technology allows us to accurately measure and plot plant beds targeted for management as well.
In order to provide quality assurance, all of our biologists who conduct aquatic plant surveys have completed the Aquatic Plant Identification and Survey Methods Training course conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
