Loring Pond Cattail Project

Winter cattail cutting underway

Applied Ecological Services (AES) staff started cutting floating mat cattails in the South Bay on Wednesday, Jan. 19. They are using brush saws to cut cattails at ice level.

(Note: winter cattail cutting is to facilitate future work on the floating cattail mats in the lake. It is not being used as a strategy to control cattails.)

AES anticipates working on site through this week and into next week, depending on weather and ice conditions. Debris generated by the cutting operations will be removed by the end of the week.

MPRB staff continue to explore options for removal of the North Bay cattail mat. Removal of the North Bay cattail mat is not part of this contracted work with AES.
