Lake Restoration in Iowa

Working Together to Restore and Protect Iowa’sSignificant, Publicly-owned Lakes Collaborating with the public for– Improved water quality– Quality sport fishery– Healthy wildlife habitats– Providing Iowans with expandedrecreational opportunities Program Goals– Cost effective investment for Iowa– Sustained improvement to waterclarity, safety, and overall quality ofIowa Lakes

Starting point for the program is our 135 Significant, Publicly-owned lakes: 94 Constructed , 25 Natural, 9 Surface Mines, 6 Oxbows and 1 COE Reservoir

Lake Prioritization , Planning, and Implementation Process

Program Priority Watersheds

Iowan’s love their lakes, and they are an importantpart of the State’s Economy 6 of 10 Iowans visit our lakesmultiple times with a given year Statewide, lakes generate 1.2billion in annual spending byIowans Iowans are willing to drivefarther for lakes with betterwater quality and moreamenities Lake Restoration activities workto provide diverse recreationalopportunities and improvedwater quality for future Iowagenerations

Lake Prioritization , Planning, and Implementation Process

How the Process Translates to a Project

2015 Major Projects: Prairie Rose Lake (Shelby) Watershed Work Leads the Way – A 2008watershed project led the way by reducingnutrient and sediment delivery to Prairie RoseLake.From Green as Grass to Blue as the Sky –Water quality improved dramaticallyfollowing in-lake restoration effortscompleted over the past 3 years.Excellent Angling Opportunities– Restockingbegan in April of 2013, and fishing activity hasincreased dramatically in 2015.Comprehensive Restoration – This 4 Mproject included everything from watershedwork to in-lake dredging to restore andpreserve the lake for generations to come.Positive Feedback – Visitors to the lake reportexcellent fishing and new opportunitiesbecause of restoration efforts.

2015 Major Projects: Iowa Great Lakes (Dickinson) Major Restoration Work at Marble/Hottes Complex – Restoration of theseshallow lakes will improve water quality and provide excellent wildlife habitatWatershed Conservation Practices Help Protect the Great Lakes – Extensivewatershed work continues throughout the Great Lakes in both urban and ruralsettings to protect these important resourcesProject Partnerships Lead to Success – The LRP has partnered with a variety oforganizations, investing over 1 Million dollars since 2010 (a 34% cost share of thenearly 3.1 million dollars spent).Rock Barriers at Center Lake Limit Rough Fish – Barriers constructed will preventcarp from entering wetlands adjacent to the lake (where carp typically spawn),thus limiting the carp population in the Great Lakes.

2016 PlanMajor Projects in 2016 Include: Lake Manawa – Dredging Easter Lake – Yeader CreekStabilization, Shoreline work Black Hawk Lake – Inlet marshrestoration Center Lake – Shoreline work andwetland enhancement Pleasant Creek Lake – Shorelinedeepening and armoring, publicaccess improvement Union Grove Lake – Shoreline,dredging and outlet structurerepair Kent Park Lake – Watershed workUnion Grove Lake drawn down in the summer of2015 in preparation for 2016 activitiesExample of shoreline erosion atPleasant Creek Lake that will beaddress in 2016

Highlighted Success Stories: Blue Lake (Monona) Innovative Solutions – New fish barrier/water control structures at Blue Lake willprevent rough fish from entering the lake while allowing water to pass through(first of their kind in the State of Iowa). These solutions will help should the fisherybe renovated at the lake.Local Stakeholder Involvement – Local land owners meet DNR and other projectpartners regularly to determine the best path forward for Blue Lake.Investing in Our State Parks – Lewis and Clark State Park draws in thousands ofvisitors annually to enjoy the Blue Lake Beach, visit the Keel Boat, and discovermore about that natural world in the learning center.

Highlighted Success Stories: Easter Lake (Polk) Partnerships in Action – Multipleagencies are working together forwater quality; LRP funding about 50%of this 18 million dollar project.Watershed Success – Addressingstorm water and nutrient loading inan urban environmentProviding New Opportunities – newmulti-use trail around the lake,additional lake amenities, andshoreline improvements are projectedto dramatically increase lakevisitation.In-lake Restoration – Dredging andshoreline armoring with improvewater quality and increase thelifespan of the lake

Highlighted Success Stories: Lake Darling (Washington) Long-term Planning for Success – This 13million dollar project spanned over 5 years,and resulted in extensive improvementsthroughout the park. The LRP invested 7million in this project.Watershed and In-lake Work Yields WaterQuality Improvement– Water clarity morethan doubled due to extensive workthroughout the watershed and in-lakedredging, installation of a new outletstructure, and shoreline improvementsalong the lake.Lake Restoration Leads the Way –Following the in-lake restoration, the parkhas constructed numerous other parkimprovements, including 4-season cabins,new bathroom facilities, and interpretivesigns and trails.

Lake Manawa (Pottawattamie) Dredging planned for2016 to deepen thisoxbow lake for waterquality improvement500,000 CY is planned tobe removed by ContractorJ.F. Brennon Co.beginning in MarchDNR continues to meetwith project partners,such as the “Friends ofLake Manawa” to solicitsupport for the project.

Highlighted Success Stories: Lost Grove Lake (Scott) Creating New Opportunities – This 20 year projectresulted in a new 400 acre lake near the Quad-CitiesClear Waters Ahead – Water quality at Lost GroveLake is among the best in the State, and the fisheryat the lake is rapidly growing to provide newopportunities for anglers. The lake also providesflood protection and soil conservation benefits.Long-Term Economic Growth – An investment inIowa’s infrastructure; this lake serves over 400,000local residents and is predicted to draw many newoutdoor enthusiasts to the area.

Pleasant Creek Lake (Linn) Lake is partially drawn down in preparation for 2016 work. 2015 work included thereplacement of stop log structure at the lake.Shoreline armoring and deepening will protect the lake from shoreline erosion andprovide new opportunities for anglers.In-lake work is currently budgeted at 2.5 million dollars. Project partners includethe US Coast Guard, the Marine Fuel Tax Fund, and the Sport Fish Restoration Fund Additional improvementsinclude fishing jetties,fish habitat, and boatramp replacements
