2014 DIAMOND LAKE AQUATIC PLANT MANAGEMENT PROJECT

Background

Situated in the heart Washington’s Pend Oreille County, Diamond Lake is one of many sparkling bodies of water belonging to the Evergreen State. Centuries ago, sand and gravel dislodged from a glacier to form a natural dam, which in turn created the freshwater lake that exists today. Diamond Lake is mostly spring fed, and drains into Moon Creek – which then carries the water to Sacheen Lake and the Little Spokane River.

dimage002In 2013, in continuing efforts to control Eurasian Watermilfoil (EWM), Yellow Flag Iris, Fragrant Water Lily and Reed Canary Grass around Diamond Lake, Lakeland Restoration Services, with the direction of the Diamond Lake Improvement Association treated 12 acres for EWM.

LRS believes, unless undocumented infestations of EWM are found, the majority of continued efforts should be directed at controlling YFI infestations along the outlet and the lake.

For the 2014 treatments and surveys LRS has been contracted by the Pend Oreille Conservation District. LRS will work closely with the POCD and the DLIA.

LRS believes thatEWM treatment for 2014 should be minimal, DLIA divers may be able to control EWM by hand pulling. An entire lake survey for EWM may not be necessary for the 2014 season.

LRS has provided prompt and accurate service to Diamond Lake, conducting successful aquatic and riparian restoration projects. We welcome the opportunity to advise and conduct ongoing restoration projects at Diamond Lake.
