With a specially outfitted pontoon boat, the Lake Quassapaug association made strides over the summer in combating an aggressively invasive weed, which left unchecked, could take over the pristine recreational area. Divers from AE Commercial Diving Services in Vermont manually pulled out seven acres of the aquatic milfoil plant from the 300-acre lake over three weeks, clearing the channels in Dam Cove and Tylers Cove as well as along West Shore and a large bed of milfoil just south of Big Cove. When the association started removing the variable milfoil in 2014, the plant covered about 50 acres of lake.
