Town Eager to Tackle Lake Beseck’s Out-of-Control Weeds
Seen from Route 147, Lake Beseck may look like it has returned to normal following the lowering of the lake’s water level in October of 2013 to facilitate a dam repair, but two new weeds are choking acres of water and waterfront since the draw down.

Middlefield officials and Mark June-Wells, the limnologist studying the lake, blame the draw down for creating an environment where the new weeds could thrive. The weeds are Phragmites australis and Typha latifolia. Both are perennials. The first is a tall reedy grass. The second is more commonly called a cattail.

Lake Beseck is owned by the state. The CT DEEP ordered the draw down in order to repair the dam, so Middlefield officials are hoping the CT DEEP will pay for removing the subsequent weeds.

Sincere Condolences - We were deeply saddened to hear of the weed harvester accident and fatality on Wallace Lake in Washington County this week. While the cause of the accident is still being investigated, it will remain a tragedy regardless of what they find. For that reason, we feel it is important to point out that this was not an Aquarius Systems Harvester. Additionally, we can assure you that our professionally-registered engineering staff calculates & analyzes buoyancy & balance very very carefully for every Weed Harvester, Trash Harvester and Swamp Devil we design and build. We send our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. Aquarius Systems
