OUR MILFOIL MAPS ARE READY TO SHARE! 🌿

May 6, 2019

Long Lake Milfoil Mapping 2018 (LLMM 2018) was a collaborative effort involving lake residents and the City’s Lake Water Quality Program.

 

  • Volunteers  - 10 boat teams mapped over 60 sections of Long Lake in the month of August

  • Lake Water Quality Staff provided training, GPS units, and technical support for developing the Google maps

 

THE RESULT - Digital maps indicating location and density of beds of Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM).

 

These maps should allow us all to better avoid these areas and HELP STOP THE SPREAD!

 

The Controlling the Milfoil Zombie summary includes the link to our maps.

 

Note:  We intend to repeat the mapping project this summer.  Can you volunteer your time and/or a boat? Contact the LLSC at longlakesudbury@gmail.com.

 

Note:  We expect that our lake will participate in a scientific pilot project this summer to investigate a control method for EWM.
