News Alert!!! Eurasian Watermilfoil is Spreading

EWM is spreading in the lake and elsewhere in Canada.  This invasive aquatic plant is found in many Ontario lakes, and can be found close to Farlain Lake in Penetang Harbour and in Little Lake Park Midland. Despite the FLCA’s efforts since 2014, the plant has spread to other areas of the lake including four different locations on the west side. Human recreational activities (e.g. boating, fishing, etc.) and natural interaction (e.g. waterfowl, fish, aquatic mammals, heavy wave action, etc.) can damage the fragile EWM plant leading to the spread of EWM through plant fragments.

Unfortunately our lake with its shallow depth, allows sunlight to reach the bottom of the lake in most areas, which is an ideal environment for EWM plants to grow and thrive. If EWM is allowed to spread unchecked, the invasive plants will increase in size to become a dense floating mat in front of our properties, destroying the lake’s ecology as well as our enjoyment of our beautiful lake.
