Are there any weed problems?

Bungay Lake has several varieties of aquatic plants. In general, the native varieties such as shoreline Valisenaria or eelgrass is a healthy part of the lake eco-system. They provide buffers from incoming nutrients, shelter for fish and food for water foul. Non-native plants such as Fanwart and Milfoil are intrusive, spread rapidly by fragmentation and can choke out lakes very quickly. Every other year, the Board organizes a hydro-raking service to individual homeowners who wish to clear weeds and sediment from their lake frontage. Call any Board member for details.
