Check Out the Northwood Lake WebCam!
Updated hourly and positioned on the northeastern shore of the lake, the webcam gives those of you who are not presently on the lake a chance to view current conditions. Though the resolution is somewhat limited, you can still get an idea of weather, ice conditions and water level.

Lake Survey Shows Great Progress Against Milfoil
A survey of Northwood Lake done in early June shows that we are getting excellent results due to the vigorous program that the NLWA put in place and has been maintaining for the past several years. Kudos to everyone involved, from weed watchers, lake hosts and divers to the folks at Aquatic Control Technologies. We have achieved effective control of the milfoil in the lake, so that no further chemical treatment is needed at this time. However, continued diligence and ongoing efforts in the form of hand pulling and suction harvesting are necessary to ensure we don’t give back the great gains that we have made. There are still dense patches of milfoil in a few areas that will require our attention to prevent re-infestation of the areas that we have cleared. Over the years, we’ve seen that the amount of interest in the milfoil problem tends to dwindle at the same rate as the number of invasive plants in the lake. It is vital that we continue our efforts and take advantage of the momentum we have attained. The health of the lake, like the health of our own bodies, requires constant attention and care.
