The Milfoil Problem

Lake users began noticing milfoil in 2018. It was predicted to fill the lake completely in three years. Through dogged determination and the support of many allies, FoVL and the rowing club ultimately gained approval to use newly-approved ProcellaCOR to treat the Lake’s Eurasian Milfoil. FoVL also began extensive fundraising efforts gaining support from hundreds of Clark County citizens and significant donations from the Firstenburg Foundation and the Ed and Dollie Lynch Foundation as well as contributions from Clark County and the Port of Vancouver USA.
