The Round Lake Property Owners Association is sponsoring as aquatic invasive species (AIS) project implementing AIS control measures identified in the approved Aquatic Plant Management Plan. Project goals includes: 1) Keep Eurasian water milfoil (EWM) growth to a minimum level; 2) Prevent the establishment of other AIS including Purple Loosestrife, curly leaf pondweed, flowering rush, zebra mussels; 3) Preserve the lakes\2019 diverse native plant communities; 4) Lake residents understand the importance of native aquatic plants, the means to protect them, and AIS threats; 5) Waterfront residents will protect lake water quality and plant communities by minimizing runoff of pollutants from their lake property.
