The Milfoil Problem
Milfoil notoriously clogs waterways and blocks boating and swimming opportunities. It grows rapidly and spreads by fragmentation. That means any boat, swimmer, fish, or wind that breaks off a piece contributes to its advancement. Lake users noticed milfoil two years ago. This year it began encroaching into boating lanes. It is predicted to fill the lake completely in three years, strongly harming the recreational potential of the lake.
