Milfoil Could Possibly Close a Section of Shadow Lake
Members of the Shadow Lake Association have petitioned the state, asking that a roughly one-acre section of the lake be closed to human use in order to control milfoil. It would be only the second time in Vermont that part of a lake has been closed to public use because of milfoil.

Linda Gilman, president of the Shadow Lake Association stress that it would be temporary, and that the size of the area to be closed would likely shrink as the milfoil dies.

Ms. Gilman said the mats have been down for about 28 months. Eventually, with diligence, they should kill the milfoil.
The last time the rule was exercised was in 1998 when part of Lake Morey was closed due to a milfoil infestation, said Matthew Probasco, aquatic nuisance control and pesticide general permit coordinator at the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).

Knocking on the Great Lakes Door - An aquatic invasive species that was first found in North America in the 1940’s, Eurasian watermilfoil has spread to almost every state, where it grows into thick mats that can make lakes impenetrable for boats and swimmers. Milfoil can make it impossible for native plants to grow, affecting fish and wildlife.
