Quantitative Aquatic Plant Survey
In August 2011 the GLCA contracted Darrin Fresh Water Institute to conduct an Aquatic Plant Growth survey of Galway Lake. This survey was conducted to provide the Association with a means to quantitatively measure the success of the 2010 – 2011 drawdown.
The aquatic plant survey was designed to provide data on aquatic plant distribution and to evaluate a treatment program based on lake level drawdown and benthic barrier installation to control Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum).
