Denser infestationÂ in the northeastern cove covered with filamentous algae. The northern end byÂ the spillway displayed trace patches. Down the western shoreline, the ElodeaÂ becomes sparse to moderate density to the cove area just south of westÂ beach. Then the density increases with moderate patches scattered aroundÂ the cove.Â Past the island, down to the southern end and back along the launch,Â the Elodea becomes very dense with filamentous algae clinging to toppedÂ out plants. The lake center displayed stray patches of Elodea with 90% of theÂ plants topped out.Â Water samples collected for algae county. Spoke withÂ Lara Gorton on site.
