Meeting on Tuesday, August 15 at 8 pm. Township Hall at Round Lake. Are we already losing fish, certainly gonna affect camping around the lake. Harder to find areas of the lake to boat without getting caught up in weeds!

MIlfoil can only be removed by the use of Herbicides or manual removal. There is a lake in CT that is trying a beetle but it the success wont be know for years

does this weed propogate in later years when it is mechanically harvested?

Mill foil is prevalant throughout all of New England. It is insidious. Incredibly, it has not killed off any fish as it is an oxygen producer. The lakes that are in townships will sometimes have special machines that cut and harvest the weeds. Believe it or not, it has reuse value. I have manually removed it from lakefronts on Lake Champlain. It is extremely labor intensive.

Just read at Paddlewise (a paddlers site) that the State of New York once used sterilised European Carp to deal with the problem, and it worked wonderfully!
