Secchi Disk Readings for Little Elk Lake

If improving the water quality of Little Elk Lake is important to you, than you should read this flyer.

Sponsored by Little Elk Lake Improvement Association (LELIA) is the joint shoreline owner initiative to treat the two non-native exotic aquatic plants that infest our lake (Curlyleaf Pondweed & Eurasian Water Milfoil).

There is a direct correlation between the control of invasive aquatic plants and improved water quality on Little Elk Lake (see data below). As you can see by the chart, when treatments were started in 2005 improvements were evident.

The improvement was achieved by only about 15% of lakeshore owners participating in the treatment through the services of Lake Management, Inc. Imagine the results if you become involved and signed up with others in your lake community.

Readings for 2016 and prior
