Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The proposed Project is a two-year program to test the use of multiple methods, independently and in combination, to control three target aquatic weeds: Eurasian watermilfoil, curly-leaf pondweed, and coontail. The Project will include large-scale treatment methods for addressing target aquatic weeds using aquatic herbicides and/or large-scale ultraviolet light and localized treatment methods for addressing target aquatic weeds, including ultraviolet light spot treatments, bottom barriers, diver-assisted suction and diver hand pulling techniques. The Project will also integrate measures to enhance water quality, prevent the spread of target aquatic weeds to new areas and from re-infesting previously treated areas, and minimize the formation of hazardous algal blooms.
