ANNOUNCEMENTS for the Lake Helen P&R District
The first major Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM) control treatment took place on TUESDAY MAY 27th.
This treatment was done by a professional applicator under a permit that was granted by the Wisconsin DNR. The treatment needed to take place when the water temperature was right for the EWM to be growing, but it was still too early for the native plants. Now we need to wait and see just how effective the treatment was. It is likely that some EWM will continue to propagate and grow, so the manual pulling will need to continue.
If you see any EWM plants, please contact Rob Hvizdak or one of the Commissioners.
Go to the "Invasive Plants" page for more information.
Contact one of the Commissioners or Committee Leaders, if you have any questions or are interested in helping in any of these areas.
