Noxious Weeds/LMD

Mason Lake is experiencing noxious weeds that started with Milfoil and now includes Sagittaria graminea SAG.  These weeds were brought in from other lakes by boats and trailers who were on lakes that have the same problem.  Mason County is not assisting lake residence in resolving the issue, so a Lake Management District was created and homeowners have an assessment that appears on your property tax statement of funds that are collected for the continuing eradication of these weeds.  Please inspect your and your guest's boats and trailers before launching

The Milfoil Committee:

Colby Swanson, Susan Swanson, Gary Penfold, Peter Reidel, Frank & Rhonda Kincaid, Don Brown, Susan Summers and Bob St. Clair
