Why do we have so many lake weeds?

Water temperature, depth, water quality and lake usage all play a part in weed quantity. The lake weeds multiply when they break up, float around, and then establish new colonies. A new plant can start from a tiny piece of an existing one. The most common form of weed in Chestermere Lake is the Northern Milfoil.
