DLWID is monitoring the aquatic plant growth and has identified the most sighted plant to be Vallisneria americana,commonly referred to as tapegrass or eelgrass. It is a widely distributed non-invasive water grass.This particular species is not known for being problematic however it has been used to enhance fish and wildlife populations.

While over vegetation is certainly an issue, Devils Lake is still currently well under a healthy level of in water vegetation. The District has evaluated aquatic vegetation management options and will be discussing these options in upcoming board meetings.
If you suspect an invasive species please contact the DLWID office @ 541-994-5330.
