Beaver Dam Lake Management Plan Implementation

A grant has been approved by the DNR to assess the curly leaf pondweed, the invasive species of aquatic plant which covered the majority of the lake in 2015. If the plant reappears this spring the grant will be used to assess the growth and determine control and monitoring strategies that can be put into action.

A new contract has been let by the DNR for continued commercial fishing of carp in the lake which is a major factor in carp management.

A review and study of carp barriers to the major bays is also underway as another step in carp management and improvement of game and pan fish habitat.

Development of additional recreational use of the lake with the installation of the kayak dock and launch at Waterworks Park.
