  • Lake Iroquois Association Announces FREE Boat Washing Open House & Demonstration

    Posted by Posted on Thursday, 22 Jun 2017 06:53 PM

    FROM PRESS RELEASE

    For the first time, trained greeters at the public boating access on Lake Iroquois are offering free boat and trailer washing. The objective is to prevent additional invasive species from entering the Lake. The public is invited to an open house demonstration of the washer on Sunday, June 25 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

    Lake Iroquois already has a serious infestation of Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM), which the Lake Iroquois Association (LIA), with the help of the surrounding towns and the state Department of Environmental Conservation (VT-DEC), continue to fight. The LIA is trying to prevent other invasive species from entering the lake. For example, Lake Champlain has 50+ invasive species. Other Vermont lakes have additional invasive species as well (both plant and animal).  Some examples are: zebra mussels, spiny water fleas, variable leaved watermilfoil, alewife, European frogbit, water chestnut, Asian clams, and many more.  The washing of boats and trailers at Lake Iroquois will minimize the introduction of these and other invasive species into the lake.
