Since 1984, the Salem Lakes Preservation Association has dedicated itself to the environmental health and wellbeing of the greater Salem Lakes area. We all now face our biggest challenge since our inception, Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM). Despite best efforts, EWM has now infested a substantial portion of our lake and it is spreading fast. EWM threatens Lake Salem’s water quality, our ability to boat, fish and swim. It even impacts our property values. We must now resort to a new plan to confront this invasive weed infestation with the most effective tactics available.
