The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) science crews will be collecting information on fish species, taking water samples and checking for invasive species in the lake during the summer of 2018. This will include the installation of nets which will be marked with yellow buoys marked with the Ontario logo at different locations every day for a specific period. These areas need to be avoided. More information in the Spring issue of Ripples and will be sent to FLCA members as it becomes available.
Farlain Lake water levels continue to be high although they have come down slightly over the past few weeks with the hot sunny weather. Property owners should watch for flooding of septic leach beds and systems as well as damage to trees immersed in water for long periods, potentially damaging their root systems.
The Farlain Lake Community Association continues to work hard on strategies to control the invasive aquatic plant, Eurasian Watermilfoil. Plans are well underway to confirm the areas of infestation and remove as much of the plant as possible. Fund-raising efforts to support the equipment and supplies needed continue. Our sincere appreciation to Tiny Township for funds to help support our efforts this summer. Further information about the plant and our efforts can be found on this site under Stewardship/Eurasian Watermilfoil Dealing with the Threat.
