Scuba divers will be hand-pulling Eurasian milfoil, an invasive aquatic weed, from Percival Cove and a small area in the mid-basin starting March 13. The work will take about two weeks to complete.
Milfoil was first discovered in Capitol Lake in 2001. The weed crowds out native vegetation, reducing fish and wildlife habitat.
Enterprise Services has used hand-pulling as a non-chemical means for controlling the milfoil since 2007.
