Aquatic Plant Management Project in Turville Bay

Dane County, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and the US Army Corps of Engineers completed the Turville Bay research project in 2013 and published the results as a fact sheet (PDF) and project report (PDF). This project evaluated the response of selective early-season herbicide application and cutting of aquatic plants on Turville Bay, the southwest area of Lake Monona, on Eurasian water milfoil, an invasive aquatic exotic plant) and on native plant communities.
