Week 4 Milfoil Harvesting Update: Lower Lake Inlet
Divers returned to the Lower Lake Inlet for a second week following the July 4th holiday, removing 157 bags of milfoil (about two tons). They continued to clear and widen the boating path that has now been marked by milfoil buoys. Boaters are reminded that the buoys mark a cleared path through the milfoil bed at the south end of the Lower Lake. Try to travel between the buoys, not around them. If you need to enter or exit the path to reach your camp, travel at a 90-degree angle from the path to minimize travel through the bed. This will help reduce milfoil fragments that can take root and create more plants. The maps show the harvest activity in the Lower Lake over the two weeks of harvesting. The dots represent the bags removed.
