BEECHER LAKE PROTECTION & REHAB DISTRICT: Beecher Lake EWM Control Project

The Beecher Lake District (the District) proposes to selectively control Eurasian water-milfoil (EWM) through chemical treatment, winter drawdowns, and preventative measures in Beecher Lake and Upper Lake during the period 2010 - 2013. The project includes conducting annual pre and post-treatment surveys to monitor the extent of EWM and efficacy of treatments, treating EWM infested areas with aquatic herbicides, creating GIS maps of the treated areas to guide future applications, and conducting winter drawdowns to examine the effectiveness of such actions as a control measure. Additional activities under the project include a survey of Beecher Lake for evidence of the native milfoil weevil and if present, its potential as a biological control agent will be evaluated. The District will also continue education and prevention activities to prevent further AIS infestations, participation in the Citizen Lake Monitoring Network (CLMN) AIS monitoring, and conducting watercraft inspections.
