Aquatic Invasive Species Committee

(formerly the Eurasian Water Milfoil Committee)

Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM) was first discovered in Tomahawk and Sandbar lakes in the Fall of 2004. The Barnes Eau Claire Lakes Property Owners Association helped organize an Ad Hoc Committee which coordinated the submission of a grant. The grant was awarded which resulted in survey work being done the summer of 2005. Read more about the activity below.

Members of the committee approached the town board during the summer of 2006 to get an official town committee established. At the board's September, 2006 meeting the committee was approved.

The information here will relate to actions of the committee. For information about EWM look here in the Town Digital Library, Environmetal Topics.
