EWM: The Facts

EWM Fact Sheet

Eurasian Watermilfoil in an aggressive, invasive plant which is spreading throughout DCL. In 2011 Friends of DCL volunteers conducted extensive research on nature of this invasive plant, impacts on recreational and water quality in other lakes and what other states and lake associations are doing to prevent importation and establish controls. Once in the lake, it will never be fully eradciated. This Fact Sheet is based on this extensive research and was presented to the Policy and Review Board at their July meeting where is was accepted as a “advocacy” document, not a serioius compiliation of research.
