Reports and Documents
The Gresham Lakes Association (GLA) and Town of Boulder Junction finalized Comprehensive Management Plan for all three lakes in May 2009. The GLA implemented the EWM control and monitoring components of this plan through a multi-year project from 2008-2013. The project largely consisted of herbicide spot treatments targeting EWM on Upper Gresham Lake, but also included periodic monitoring of Middle Gresham Lake which is known to contain a small population of EWM. From 2013-2017, non-herbicide management of EWM on Upper Gresham took place.
