The project includes building roofs over animal feeding areas, planting grass by farmland ditches, and digging out ditches to remove soil and sediment with high phosphorous concentrations. Phosphorous, a mineral found in fertilizers, is the main contributor to lake algae.

Hybrid Form of Milfoil on Pentwater Lake - Pentwater Lake Improvement Board President Joe Primozich recently issued an update on changes going on in overall health of Pentwater Lake. Primozich said according to Progressive AE, the Grand Rapids company that monitors the lake vegetation, the aquatic invasive water milfoil has now changed to the hybrid form. “This means that it has a greater tolerance to herbicides and will require a more costly treatment than dealing with the native northern milfoil or the exotic Eurasian milfoil of the past 16 years,” Primozich said. “This appears to be a more aggressive growth pattern.”
