Michigan Lake Launches Aggressive Eurasian Watermilfoil Reduction Project

Pickerel Lake Pavilion Township, MI (PRWEB) April 17, 2013

Pickerel Lake, a 140-acre lake in southwest Michigan, is launching an aggressive assault on invasive Eurasian Watermilfoil using a cutting edge all-natural approach proving to be “a game changer” in the fight against weed-choked lakes – Laminar Flow Inversion Oxygenation and Biological Augmentation.

How Bad Is the Lake?

According to 50-year lake resident Marv Thomas, Pickerel Lake is in bad shape. “Last year was the worst yet. It was a no man’s land. The lake was unusable for any boating purposes.” A 2012 Pickerel Lake water quality report revealed that 90% of the lake was covered with milfoil. The explosive growth of the weed was being fueled by 10 feet of decaying organic muck coating the bottom of the lake.

When asked what other options they considered, Thomas replied “we looked at chemical herbicides, milfoil weevils, and dredging. We polled lake residents. No one wanted chemicals in our water. And with chemicals weeds just become tolerant and new weeds continue to grow. We wanted a permanent solution, not just send dead weeds to the bottom of the lake. Dredging was out of the question because of cost. And when we looked at other lakes where weevils were used, they too appeared to be a losing battle.”

Why Laminar Flow Inversion Oxygenation and Biological Augmentation?

The 2012 water quality analysis conducted by Restorative Lake Sciences LLC found that the excessive milfoil growth was a result of nutrients being released from “significant organic sediment at the lake bottom”. The report recommended that “any solution that does not address organic sediment accumulation is putting t
