Mud Lake

About This Priority Conservation Area

Mud Lake is a smaller 204-acre lake with a mean depth of just under 6 ft. Mud Lake is located near the town of Redwood, New York. From the southeast, Crystal Lake’s waters flow into Mud Lake and the outlet (where canoe/kayak access is located) flows northeast to Butterfield Lake. NYSDEC reports that there are Northern Pike, Bluegill, Brown Bullhead, and Yellow Perch in the lake.

Tier List Species Established at This PCA

These invasive species tiers guide management priorities in New York State and are utilized by the Partnership For Regional Invasive Species Management or PRISM Network. The species categorized in each tier are dependent on species distribution, abundance, and management options available, and may vary depending on the region. The species listed below are the species categorized in the SLELO PRISM region.

Tier 1 Species

The management approach is Early Detection & Prevention. Species are not known to be in the SLELO region but are within 100 miles and an introduction pathway exists. 

Species Recorded at This PCA

No Tier 1 Species were found at this PCA at this time.  

Tier 2 Species

Management Approach is Eradication. Species are known to be present in the SLELO region but are in low abundance with suitable treatment methods available to make eradication feasible with Priority Conservation Areas. 

Species Recorded at This PCA

No Tier 2 Species were found at this PCA at this time. 

Tier 3 Species

The management approach is Suppression. Species are too widespread for eradication from the region, but some areas remain unaffected. Targeted management can be used to suppress the population within Priority Conservation Areas. 

Species Recorded at This PCA
  • Common buckthorn

Tier 4 Species

The management approach is Local Control. Species are present and widespread throughout the region with no chance of eradication. Localized management is applied to protect high-priority resources like rare plant habitats or recreation areas. 

Species Recorded at This PCA
  • Eurasian water-milfoil
  • European frog-bit
  • Honeysuckle   
  • Purple loosestrife
  • Spotted knapweed

Tier 5 Species

The management approach is to Monitor. Species may or may not be in the region but are difficult to respond to or require more knowledge of distribution, and management options. 

Species Recorded at This PCA

No Tier 5  species were found at this PCA at this time. 

Species Found at this PCA that are not listed in SLELO PRISM's Tiers
