Recently DLWID contracted with a vegetation management firm to map aquatic plants in and around Devils Lake. During the course of the survey Parrot Feather, a common invasive plant species in Oregon, was identified. The District is using the information obtained in the report to investigate management options for control of the invasive species. In addition the report provides an updated set of bathymetry maps which will aid the District in monitoring any local effects the aeration system has on our lake bottom. Preliminary estimates have been requested from vegetation management contractors to eradicate the Parrot Feather.
