Reports and Documents
The Anvil Lake Association invested in the components to build a Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting (DASH) unit for use on Anvil Lake in 2016. This summer was the first summer the DASH was available for the entire summer. The DASH unit was used to manage Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM) in the North Bay of the lake and other approved areas. A permit was granted to the Anvil Lake Association on June 2017 by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to allow mechanical harvesting on 12 acres in the north bay of the lake and other selected areas. The DASH unit remained on Anvil Lake for the harvest season.
