Old Business

A. EPS monitoring plan and report Mark Sesing: The control sites were not in total existence due to the high water. Mark said that the high water will over ride any of our EPS strategy that we had in place. Although the EPS wasnít a success we will be ready for next year. We will need to get better control sites for next year similar to what we have on Lake Puckaway. As it is now they didnít find any sites that are in the area that are the same as Lake Puckaway. Derek handed out the some aerial maps of where are survey sites are on the lake. This years EPS didnít provide us any information. We really donít have a good base line for our EPS program on whether it works or doesnít work. The only base line we have are on our 2010 conditions that went from low water (EPS) to high water at the end of the boards left off later than normal. Mark said that this is adaptive and we will have to make changes as needed.
