Survey Date: July 17th, 2019
Report Date: 8/22/2019
Personnel: Thomas Chagrasulis, Derek Langadas, Samuel Morton, and Paul Walker.
Method: Four snorkelers.
General Survey Area: This survey covered the southern basin of Moose Pond. The target area extended 50-75 feet from the shoreline into the littoral zone. The general survey area is highlighted yellow on the attached map.
High-Risk Sites: The location listed below was preselected as the area of focus for the survey by LEA and members of the Moose Pond Association due to increased risk because of the boat launch and shallow water column. Please refer to the attached maps for the survey area.
Findings: The team did not observe any invasive aquatic plants during the survey. Only native species were seen, including a species of native milfoil, which is consistent with historical surveying data. Periodic surveying around Moose Pond’s public boat launches and private marinas will help to ensure that any invasive species are caught early before an infestation can get established.
