Rainbow Lake Weed Problem: Doubts About Chemicals
The waters of Rainbow Lake seem serene, reflecting the summer sky. But there are weeds in the water, and all is not at peaceful along the shores, where owners of the houses that sprout amid small patches of lawn and overhanging trees discuss caring for their 41-acre lake.

A few things are at issue, among them a history of lake management practices based largely on chemical treatments, and talk of creating a taxing district that advocates say would allow the lake association enough income to undertake more ambitious and eco-friendly means of battling the aquatic weeds and algae.

John Keegan, who grew up on the lake and likes to fish, is skeptical of the use chemicals and critical of the board. “If they continue with the current management practices of dumping chemicals in to kill all the weeds, and that’s their entire management approach, 35 or 40 years from now it’ll be a swamp.”
