Did you know that Liberty Lake is home to a few different aquatic invasive species? LLSWD is aware of three; two are plants, and one is a snail from Asia. The District actively manages the invasive plants in the lake annually via aquatic herbicide treatments and occasionally diver hand removal. Our efforts are extremely targeted to these specific species, so as not to impact the native plant population. A healthy mix of native plant species help to impede the spread of these aggressive invaders, as well as uptake nutrients from the water column, reducing the frequency and intensity of algal growth.
