At our Town Meetings, Bill Kirkpatrick talks about our weeds. Not all weeds are bad. The weeds we deal with show we have a healthy, balanced Lake. The 3 major weed types are covered in the links below:
Remember that different Lakes and bodies of water have vastly different environments. Moving your boat/trailer between locations can be our biggest vulnerability to Indian Lake. The following steps can greatly reduce the risk...
- Dry your boat/trailer at least 7-10 days
- Use a Chlorine/Bleach solution to rinse
- Pressure Wash before launching in Indian Lake
- Run Engine with boot/fresh water intake
