2019 PLANNING FOR MILFOIL CONTROL
Milfoil control will continue for 6-8 weeks on Lake Quassapaug in 2019 with the following steps:
2018 NEAR REPORT SHOWS PROGRESS
The annual invasive weed survey carried out by LQA’s consultants found no Eurasian milfoil plants. Our suction harvest crew will continue to monitor the entire lake for any Eurasian milfoil plants that need to be removed.
The report also indicated that, although variable milfoil is still present in most locations where it has been previously harvested, the average density has gone down significantly from 59% in 2014 to 33% in 2018. This data shows that LQA continues to make progress in containing the variable milfoil using suction harvesting. The full 2018 Northeast Aquatic Research report can be found under “Resources and Publications”.
