Eurasian Watermilfoil Treatment Experience
Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM) has become a nuisance in many lakes throughout the Pacific Northwest. In fact, it is the most invasive plant we have in Northwest waterways. This noxious weed can clog a lake or river and cause damage to the native plants. Thick mats of EWM can slow water flows, warming the water, squeezing oxygen out, and in turn making the water environment conditions hard on fish. EWM is also a major nuisance on recreation and a safety risk. The thick vegetation will get tangled on anything that goes through it.
Lakeland Restoration Services, LLC has worked hard to stop the spread of this noxious weed. LRS has performed 66 treatments for Eurasian watermilfoil on lakes in Idaho and Washington alone. A map of the lakes LRS has treated for EWM is shown below.
