Town Eager to Tackle Lake Beseck’s Out-of-Control Weeds
Seen from Route 147, Lake Beseck may look like it has returned to normal following the lowering of the lake’s water level in October of 2013 to facilitate a dam repair, but two new weeds are choking acres of water and waterfront since the draw down.

Middlefield officials and Mark June-Wells, the limnologist studying the lake, blame the draw down for creating an environment where the new weeds could thrive. The weeds are Phragmites australis and Typha latifolia. Both are perennials. The first is a tall reedy grass. The second is more commonly called a cattail.
