Targeting a Nuisance: Eurasian Watermilfoil
From the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board

Plants that grow in and around water can have an impact on the long-term health of our area lakes. For this reason, the MPRB completes aquatic plant surveys on Minneapolis lakes every two to three years. These surveys document the increase or decline in different species of aquatic plants.

Eurasian watermilfoil is a plant of special concern to our lakes. This non-native plant creates all kinds of problems when it invades the water. For detailed information on milfoil results and common milfoil problems, click the link below.

Harvesting is currently the best management option that the MPRB has to control Eurasian watermilfoil.  The weed harvester removes plants that are in the top six feet of the water which allows for trouble-free boating and swimming.

Winter milfoil control program gets underway on Osoyoos Lake - The winter phase of the milfoil control program on Osoyoos Lake got underway last week as water temperatures continued to cool. Unlike during the summer, when a machine cuts and harvests the tops of the invasive weed, between October and April a rototiller is used to pull the plant up by its roots.
