2020 Invasive Phragmites Survey Completed

The Chisago-Lindstrom Lakes Association (CLLA) Aquatic Invasive Species Subcommittee has finished surveying the lakes in our association and found an additional five stands of the Invasive Phragmites. All of the stands that were treated last year were revisited and notations were made as to which need additional treatment this year. There are currently 60 stands in various stages of treatment. Five new sites, 37 previously treated sites that need retreatment and 18 eradicated stands.

This treatment will occur in mid September and the DNR approved herbicides glyphosate or imazapyr, alone or in combination will be used. This treatment is at no cost to the lakeshore property owner. Funds for treatment come from our lake association (member dues) and grant funding from the Chisago Lakes Lake Improvement District.
