Weeds & Weed Harvester Update

Dear Friends of the Lake,
This has been a very unusual season for lake vegetation. The lake vegetation/weed density and prevalence is way down. One reason might be that the early and late lake snow cover kept weeds from growing. The lake level has also been higher than the last several years.  In any event, not only has Curly Leaf Pondweed NOT been a nuisance in early July but the other lake vegetation has also been reduced.
Because of the absence of problem weeds, we have not incurred the expense of putting in the weed harvester. However, the hot weather might cause a sudden growth of weeds. If you are aware of any weed issues in the lake, please let us know. We can still respond and harvest weeds through August.
Please send us an email ( identifying any weed issues and give a specific location.
Wishing all of you the best this summer,
The FLLA Board Members
