Even with 2.5 inches of rain the last 3 weeks, the lake is just over 6 feet below normal high water. That is the lowest it has been since the millpond repair. That low water level allows sunlight to reach deeper into the water and that along with early season elevated water temperature seems to have encouraged aquatic weed growth. There are several ways of trying to reduce those weeds, but most have potential to harm the lake.

Taking advantage of the low water level to remove all the weeds which are now on shore or in water shallow enough to allow complete weed and root removal might help property owners improve their waterfront.
