One of the Curses of Lake Management - Eurasian Milfoil
One of the curses of local lake management — Eurasian milfoil — continues to defy expectations.

The actual experience, at least on Camp and Center lakes, was the opposite.

There has been a “tremendous amount of milfoil,” Faber said.

The key may have been that milfoil grows at a lower temperature. Therefore, the milfoil may have actually grown well in our cool spring, Faber said.

Georgica Pond Opened for Shellfishing after Toxic Blue-Green Algae - Last year, the Friends of Georgica Pond Foundation leased an aquatic weed harvester to remove macroalgae from the pond. As it decays, the macroalgae provides nutrients to harmful algae such as cyanobacteria. The removal last summer of more than 55,000 pounds of macroalgae is believed to be responsible for a substantial reduction in the levels of cyanobacteria recorded last year, and may be a factor in the relatively brief bloom that occurred last month.
