Bylaws Changes Posted

Hand-pulling weeds The TLA engaged a new partner, New England Aquatic Services, to clear Curly Leaf Pond Weed around the boat launch at Salisbury School. This area was difficult to treat with an herbicide and work done by our new vendor at Lake Waramaug has shown that hand pulling is effective for small areas of infestation.  We expect that over the next 3-5 years, with continuous treatment or hand pulling, we can eliminate this invasive weed from Twin Lakes.
