American Lake is a 1,200 acre waterbody in Pierce County, WA. The lake was heavily impacted by the invasive aquatic weed Eurasian Milfoil. The lake residents and the City of Lakewood formed a Lake Management District to combat this growth and received grant funding from the Washington Department of Ecology.
In 2019 our team designed and implemented a treatment program that used Procellacor herbicide to restore over 160 acre of the water body. Survey work throughout the 2020 season showed 99% control lake wide.
