 This stage of the study consisted of a census of the types, quantity and location of aquatic plants on the Lake. The good doctor was accompanied by her husband Terry whose main job was to paddle his wife in their canoe to strategic locations on the lake.  Samples of the weeds present on the lake were taken along with a copious amount of notes. Dr. Tammy Karst-Riddoch indicated they would be back on the Lake in two weeks continuing with their water quality study.
