Lycott Environmental, Inc., has prepared a report of the comprehensive survey of Lake Fairlee they conducted at our request. The report, titled Aquatic Vegetation Report for Lake Fairlee, details the methods and results of two days of surveys, during which they cataloged the aquatic flora at 206 randomly selected locations in the lake.
This report is an important step towards our possible request for a permit to use an herbicide in the lake next summer to kill the milfoil. It also promises to replace our rough estimates of the extent of milfoil’s spread with actual numbers. As soon as the LFA board has had an opportunity to receive and review it I hope to make it available to you here.
Meanwhile, here is a photo of this years spectacular fall colors around our lake.
This is the hill in back of old Camp Norway.
