The Twin Lakes Association board has released the following letter regarding the escalating costs of lake management, including efforts to eradicate the invasive hydrilla plant. The letter will go out to a broader community of lake goers in coming days.
Dear Twin Lakes Member:
The lake community is staring down a real and imminent threat to our watershed. We are confident we will rise to the moment. We have assembled a top-rate task force that includes scientists, experts from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, and private contractors. Our state and local elected officials are on board. We continue to receive generous funding from the Town of Salisbury, which has covered about half of our expenses. We are applying for grants. But the costly nature of ridding invasive hydrilla and preventing it and other invasive species from re-entering the lakes will tax the resources of our association for years to come.
