Deer Lake Reservoir, Killingworth
Our September, 2009 survey found 13 species of aquatic plants. Only fanwort (Cabomba caroliniana) is invasive, but it was the dominant plant. In general, most of the aquatic vegetation in Deer Lake Reservoir was mixed together and along the shore out to about 3 meters (10 feet) deep. Other aquatic plants that in the pond included yellow water lily (Nuphar variegata), little floating heart (Nymphoides cordata), and floating-leaf pondweed (Potamogeton natans).
