Edenville Township and the Wixom Lake Improvement Board recently completed a pilot program to aerially spray evaluation plots on Sanford and Wixom lakes for the purpose of controlling growth of woody trees in the lakebeds.
The helicopter treatments went according to plan, with good weather making it possible to spray the selected plots on Wixom Lake (roughly 60 acres) and northern Sanford Lake (roughly 150 acres). These were "evaluation" plots to determine if the treatment is adequate for the types and sizes of the saplings and young trees. The work was conducted by Professional Lake Management. and paid for by Edenville Township and the Wixom Lake Improvement Board.
Four Lakes Task Force is assisting the township and Wixom Lake Improvement Board by providing information about vegetation and woody growth, and collaborating to provide assistance if needed.
Officials will evaluate the effectiveness of the treatments over the next few weeks and determine next steps.
