Final milfoil note

1987 - Eurasian Water Milfoil is first identified in Lake Minnetonka.
1989 - Eurasian Water Milfoil forms a dense canopy up to 15 feet thick in parts of the lake. The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District dedicates the Hattie Mae, the first of four $70,000 milfoil harvesters for the lake.

Today we have a lot less milfoil, but still a teunous cover for swimmers and boater. Lousy Eurasians with their lousy weeds. At least the native Waterlillies and Purple loose strife are pretty.
