Sport Lake Elodea Meeting Scheduled April 12

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享During a student ice fishing event in February, Department of Fish & Game employees found elodea in Sport Lake. A meeting will be held next week to discuss the possible use of an herbicide on the lake this summer. The earliest treatments will begin will likely be mid-July. The lake may be closed until that time, to prevent the invasive weed from spreading further. KNWR staff drilled 28 sample holes around the lake’s perimeter in mid-March and found elodea in six of the holes. The herbicide diquat has been used to treat other Kenai Peninsula lakes with elodea. Before the treatment can be applied, 30 days worth of public comment must be taken and the plan must be reviewed by relevant agencies. The meeting will be held at the Cook Inlet Aquaculture Building from 5:30-7:30pm with Kenai Watershed Forum Invasives Specialist Jennifer Peura, Kenai Peninsula Cooperative Weed Management Area President Matt Steffy, Kenai National Wildlife Refuge (KNWR) biologist John Morton, and representatives of the chemical manufacturer SePRO.last_img read more
