Spring Lake, Avon
Spring Lake is a 37-acre body of water with a maximum depth of 8.2 feet (2.5 m). There is a boat launch on the southernmost part of the lake. The west side is bounded by marginal buffer with highly fertilized athletic fields. The east side woodland is slightly more dense with trails on the other side of the buffer.
In our July 2005 survey, coontail (Ceratophyllum demersum) was the most widespread species of vegetation. The next most widespread species was the invasive Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum). The invasive curlyleaf pondweed (Potamogeton crispus) was found mainly in the southern portion of the lake with small patches in the northern end. Minor naiad (Najas minor), another invasive species, was observed only near the eastern shore of the lake.
