August 2023 DASH Update

10 Aug 2023 7:58 AM | Jerremy Jones (Administrator)

We'd like to share an update from our Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting (DASH) crew.

So far this season, Beck & Owen have been working in North Bay, Horseshoe Bay, and Oxbow Bay, hand-pulling 643 buckets (17.5 gallon) of milfoil so far.

This Monday, they have started working in the Channel, near the boat launch, and will be in the Channel for most of the remainder of their season.

Beck reached out with this note thanking lake users: "All lake users have been very respectful and encouraging with our activity taking up a lot of space."

Thank you for giving them the space they need to work!


Be sure to give them a wave, or say hi if you are passing by.

We'd like to thank all the Channel folks who signed the letter of support that Dawn Smith put together which the LSCA submitted with our grant application to help fund this project and the Greeter Program at the boat launch!

Our DASH team and the Greeter Program on Lake St. Catherine are made possible in part through a grant earned from the Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP), and the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC).
