Curly Leaf Pond Weed Could Cause Problems on Iowa Great Lakes
An underwater weed, that is taking a toll in the Iowa Great Lakes, could be coming back this summer.

Mike Hawkins, a fisheries biologist with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources said they know for a fact it's already growing under the ice.

Hawkins added it is still too early to tell for sure if it will be worse than last year. He said they still plan to implement the same control measures that were proposed late last summer. They include chemical treatment of 10 acres on the upper end of East Lake Okoboji and another 10 acres on Lower Gar, along with some mechanical harvesting.

In addition to a local harvester, Hawkins said, they're still hoping to bring in a second, larger one from Carter Lake, Iowa. Those talks are ongoing. Lake shore property owners should know, not only is it dangerous to put chemicals into the water to try to control curly leaf pond weed, it is also illegal.

Lake Champlain’s Spring Flooding - Lake Champlain Basin Program Manager Bill Howland say’s that a visual confirmation of pollution is the brown plume seen along the shoreline. Not only is the sediment which contains phosphorous; one of the necessary nutrients for algae blooms, a problem, but the logs and debris that have been washed into the lake are being tossed on the shoreline with each wave, increase the amount of erosion that is happening.
