The Town of Sudbury and the Lake Hortonia Property Owners Association recently received an aquatic nuisance control grant‐in‐aid of up to $13,707 from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, part of the Agency of Natural Resources. The grant supports the efforts to control and prevent the spread of Eurasian watermilfoil in Lake Hortonia and to other lakes and ponds.
Lake Hortonia also received a 2019 grant of up to $15,000 for spread prevention of Eurasian watermilfoil from the Lake Champlain Basin Program and the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission. The control methods used are approved by the State of Vermont and have minimal to no impact on native vegetation and wildlife. The project runs from June 2019 through September 2019.
A reminder that the LHPOA Spring Meeting will be held at 10:00 am on Sunday, May 26, at Sudbury Town Hall. Among other agenda items, we will discuss the Board’s ongoing plans for managing the milfoil.
Payment of 2019 membership dues ($150) will be received at the meeting. Or please mail them to:

The Annual Meeting of the Lake Hortonia Property Owners Association will be held on Sunday, September 2, at Camp Wachusett. Thank you, Jessie & Matt Pescatore!
The meeting will be preceded by a picnic from 12-1. Cost is $10 per person. The Annual Meeting begins at 1pm.
Please RSVP by August 23 if you would like to attend the picnic and include the # of people attending with you. We need an accurate count, as last year we over-estimated the number of attendees and therefore over-purchased the food. Please pre-pay by August 23 to LHPOA, P.O. Box 23, Bomoseen, VT 05732.
Please note that D.A.S.H. (Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting) removal of milfoil will be taking place this week and next in the area of the lake near the Lake Hortonia Country Store. Please be careful as you boat around this area.
