Scribner Pond, Norwalk
Scribner Pond is a 2-acre lake in Norwalk. The lake is strictly residential with no public boat access. The shoreline is heavily wooded with a wooded island in the center of the lake. The lake is very shallow with an average depth of about 1 meter.
The CAES IAPP vegetative survey found the presence of three plant species: an algae, charaphyte (Chara), common duckweed (Lemna minor), and invasive curlyleaf pondweed (Potamogeton crispus). Curlyleaf pondweed was found in one small patch consisting of one plant in the middle of the pond. Common duckweed was the most dominant plant. It could be found covering over half of the lake's surface water. Charaphyte was found in large amounts primarily on the eastern half of the lake.
