Fall Mountain Lake, Terryville
Our September 2009 survey found nineteen plant species including the invasive species Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) and minor naiad (Najas minor). Eurasian watermilfoil has been treated with an herbicide and was only found in small patches in the southern end. Minor naiad was the most abundant plant mostly located in the northern half of the lake and also around the lake’s perimeter. Most plant species were found growing along the shoreline with the exception of snailseed pondweed (Potamogeton bicupulatus) and minor naiad which were found growing towards the center. Three transects were examined during this survey. All the plants along these transects were found growing in less than two meters of water.
