Winter Drawdown Has Gives Milfoil Advantage over Native Species
If Worcester wants to keep using Indian Lake for recreation, then there needs be a concerted effort to reduce pollution. That is one of the main recommendations from a WPI study of the lake recently released by the Indian Lake Watershed Association.

The survey of aquatic plants, the fourth such survey since September 2015, was done by WPI students Mikhail Khibkin, Dylan Martel and Parsant Jotikashira.

Among the findings of the study is that attempts to kill invasive weeds in Indian Lake could actually be leading to their expansion.
The study "speculates" that the annual drawdown actually has a negative effect on the biodiversity that would slow growth of the invasive species.

The pondweed and milfoil both grow in cold weather, and the drawdown may be giving them an advantage over native species.
