Eurasian Water-Milfoil (EWM)

Post by Bill Wilson » Thu Aug 26, 2021 4:49 pm

It has become obvious that Sharbot Lake is being inundated with the invasive Eurasian Water-Milfoil (EWM). One only needs to look east from the causeway into the East Basin to see the impact it is having on our lake.

Attached is an info sheet describing how to identify it and how to properly and safely remove it from your waterfront.
Most important is to ensure you reduce its spread as much as possible. The smallest piece of EWM can regenerate as a new plant. This means that if you drive your boat through it, you will release hundreds of pieces of EWM that can drift into other areas and create new plants. Please, stay away from EWM areas where possible.
