State Park Service to Perform Weed Harvesting on Lake Hopatcong
Dan Bello of the State Park Service told the Lake Hopatcong Commission weed harvesting equipment is being moved from the storage yard in Franklin to the lake this week.

Three machines will be on the lake immediately, with a fourth starting part-time in mid-June. Besides the harvesters, the transport barge is also ready to go, he said. Using the barge means the weeds can be off-loaded in the middle of the lake which saves time. Without the barge, the harvesters have to meet the trucks at certain points on the shore. The harvester operators will also pick up floating debris they come across as they work.

The state Department of Environmental Protection’s Holly Ezze in the pesticide unit has been taking calls from people who want to apply pesticides to sections of the lake off their docks. She has had all applicators contact Bello. He said it’s better to apply chemicals after the harvest, but he can’t tell private property owners what to do.

Restoring Native Vegetation - Lake Conroe has a volatile history of aquatic vegetation management. Hydrilla infested the reservoir soon after the reservoir filled, resulting in coverage of approximately 10,000 acres by the early 1980’s. To control hydrilla, large numbers diploid grass carp were stocked. Grass carp not only controlled hydrilla, but also eliminated most other aquatic vegetation in the lake and continued to inhibit plant growth into the late 1990’s.
