Northwood Lake Milfoil Control- Some Progress, But Challenges Loom
Kevin Ash, President, NLWA

A biologist from the NH DES performed a survey of the lake on 8/27 to determine the situation with regards to controlling variable milfoil. While some progress has been made in certain areas, evidenced by the red circles that indicate where plants where identified in June 2014. The blue dots indicate locations of new milfoil growth... we will have our work cut out for us next year. The NLWA is currently working with the Boards of Selectmen in Northwood, Deerfield and Epsom in hopes of securing increased support from the towns in what is looking to be an expensive road ahead. Without that support, the financial burden of the fight against invasives may very well threaten the very existence of the NLWA itself. For the next couple of years, we may well be faced with using both diver harvesting in conjunction with chemical treatment in order to regain the upper hand. As we approach budget season in all three towns, I urge all of our members as well as any taxpayers who are concerned about the health of the watershed to contact their local Boards and press them to help us protect our valuable resource.
