Namaske Lake group in Goffstown seeks Manchester’s help with milfoil
The lake received a chemical treatment in June, and while dues to the association and grant money from the state have paid for part of the $9,200 cost, there is still an outstanding balance, said Michael Allard, president of the NLA.
“We’re trying to give a gentle reminder to the city of Manchester, who has not participated at all,” Allard said.
“This is the first I’ve ever heard of it,” he said. “I don’t know if we’ve been approached.”
According to Allard, problems with milfoil at the lake, formerly known as the Piscataquog River, began shortly after the Mother’s Day flood of 2006, when Scobie Pond in Francestown overflowed into the Piscataquog watershed system.
“It made the lake almost unusable,” Allard said. “At the beginning, we sort of thought we’d be able to beat it, but over the years, we’ve realized that’s not a possibility.”
“The good news is that they’ve gone down,” Allard said. “But if we stop treating it, we’ll go right back to that 7 percent level.”
