To address invasive species, the Lake Quinsigamond Commission – which is made up of representatives of Worcester, Grafton and Shrewsbury – continues efforts on a long-term comprehensive aquatic vegetation management plan. The plan includes the drawdown, harvesting, and herbicide control of vegetation, as well as public outreach to prevent new species from entering the lake.
