Aquatic Weeds 

One of the main challenges to the health and recreational value of the lake is the presence of invasive aquatic weeds.  These species were introduced to the lake in the 1980’s and they have since grown to become a nuisance. If left unchecked, they contribute to the process called “eutrophication”, where nutrients in the water cause an overgrowth of vegetation, sediments pile up, and lakes eventually become swamps.    

Other factors in the process are from septic system and fertilizer runoff. New invasive species threaten, and toxic algae blooms and their treatments frequently close other regional lakes to ALL use. All these threats can be managed to some extent to improve the health and utility of the lake, and to preserve the value of the properties around it; but this can only be done with a coordinated effort, and the involvement of all.
