 “We are currently scheduled to conduct a total DCL shoreline survey specifically for EWM the week of July 9th.  The targeted EWM survey is in addition to the 3 routine SAV surveys and will help DNR quantify the EWM problem in DCL and guide our options for managing EWM in the future.”

Friends of Deep Creek Lake has written Mr. Michael asking he inform us when DNR will begin receiving reports on EWM sightings. We reported that there have been EWM floats observed in the lake since 2/29/12, floats are being reported on all parts of the lake and some fisherman have observation the EWM beds at within 3-4 feet of the surface already in the season.
