PROTECTING & ENJOYING Lake Lillinonah SINCE 2003
Posted: September 17, 2018
Friends of the Lake cordially invites you to attend our public forum on Friday, September 28, 2018 at 7PM at the Brookfield Town Hall, room 133. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can understand the number of attendees & prepare accordingly.
The purpose of the forum is to present the results of a study and management plan for controlling invasive aquatic plants in Lake Lillinonah. As you may be aware, the invasive plants have grown out of control to the point where they pose a safety hazard, a recreational deterrent, and a detriment to the aesthetic qualities of the lake. Friends of the Lake hired Aquatic Ecosystem Research to study the invasive plant species and eradication methods to develop a management plan to help reduce the invasive plant population in the lake.
Representatives from Aquatic Ecosystem Research will be on had to present the Integrated Management Plan. Friends of the Lake will present their position on the findings. The Lake Lillinonah Authority has been invited to present their position as well. State and town representatives, media representatives, Friends of the Lake members, other organizations with ties to Lake Lillinonah and the general public will be invited to attend. Also invited will be representatives of companies that perform invasive plant eradication services to discuss their offerings and suggestions. There will be a question and answer period following the presentation.
We have included some preliminary attachments for your review in this article - including the full report that AER put together from their findings this year. To review the report in full, please click (or copy) the link here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/f15py23bk65e0nt/AAAXlU0gNYS5wN7hUA8sLNima?dl=0
We urge you to attend this forum in the hope that Friends of the Lake can build a consensus in order to move forward with a cohesive plan to solve this ‘growing’ problem.
Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions you may have.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Friends of the Lake
