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.

Federal Permit Required for use of Aquatic Pesticides - The EPA has approval of the courts to issue a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, which will require the filing of permits, along additional record-keeping and reporting requirements for point source discharges of biological and chemical pesticides that leave a residue. This included the operators that use pesticides for weed and algae control.
