duckweed and other unwanted vegetation on city lakes

City of Monroe lakes are experiencing an unusually high amount of Duckweed.  Duckweed is a small flowering plant that consists of a single flat oval leaf that floats on the surface of the water.  Abundant growth in caused by higher levels of nutrients (phosphorus and nitrogen) in the water.  These nutrients come from rainfall runoff (stormwater pollution) generated by agricultural land, lawns, and other urban sources.  Duckweed is primarily an aesthetic issue and poses not health threat to people or pets.  The City is work to develop an effective means of removing the duckweed.  For more information on causes, treatment and the City's plan for handling by clicking on the link FAQ Duckweed on City Lakes.
