Aquatic Weed Harvesting Update
The lake weed harvester began operation for the season on May 4th. This year it has been operating five days a week, with some of those days having extended hours. To date, 382 cubic yards of aquatic plants have been removed from the lake...which is 64 truckloads of lake weeds disposed of just this year! During the same period last year, 94 cubic yards of aquatic plants were removed from the lake.

The mild winter and warm spring have contributed to the explosive growth of two invasive weed species. To better control the weeds, the Village of Wauconda is developing a comprehensive multi-year lake management plan. The goal of the plan is to evaluate Bangs Lake and determine the best courses of action necessary to establish and maintain proper balance between aquatic plants, fishery, animals, and other elements so that Bangs Lake remains a healthy and viable body of water for year-round active and passive recreation.

Georgica Pond Opened for Shellfishing after Toxic Blue-Green Algae - Last year, the Friends of Georgica Pond Foundation leased an aquatic weed harvester to remove macroalgae from the pond. As it decays, the macroalgae provides nutrients to harmful algae such as cyanobacteria. The removal last summer of more than 55,000 pounds of macroalgae is believed to be responsible for a substantial reduction in the levels of cyanobacteria recorded last year, and may be a factor in the relatively brief bloom that occurred last month.
