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 in Lake Surveys/Treatment to the right.

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.

Information to the right relates to actions of the committee.
