2006 Aquatic Plant Survey Map of Lakeview Lake

(1.5 MB, .pdf Format*)

Lakeview lake is a 2.7 acre pond in West Hartford, CT . Our August, 2006 survey, found only six species of aquatic plants.  The southern 1/3 of the lake is filled with nearly impenetrable filamentous algae and free floating Wolffia and Lemna minor. This vegetation blocks the light and inhibits other plant growth.  The east and west shores in the middle of the lake support an even mix of Potamogeton pusillus and Najas flexilis.  In addition, the East shore has small quantities of Sagittaria sp. and Ludwigia palustris.  The Northern portion of the lake was devoid of all notable plant life, except for one patch of Potamogeton pusillus.
