This report discusses aquatic plant management activities completed by the Sand Lake Management District (SLMD) and Lake Education and Planning Services (LEAPS) during the 2017 season and provides details of the 2017 Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM) control plan.
The 2018 survey found macrophytes at 474 points (96.3% of the 16.0ft littoral zone). This was nearly identical to 2017 (474 points - 91.9% of the 19.0ft littoral zone) and similar to the 470 points (90.9% of the then 18.5ft littoral zone) in 2016. We identified 48 species growing in and immediately adjacent to the lake, and the 44 species in the rake (similar to 52/44 in 2017 and 51/43 in 2016) produced a Simpson Diversity Index Value of 0.94 (identical to 2017/2016).
