State Rejects Milfoil Plan At Quechee’s Lake Pinneo
State regulators say they will deny the Quechee Lakes Landowners Association permission to use a chemical herbicide to treat an invasive aquatic plant, Eurasian water milfoil at Lake Pinneo.

With invasive milfoil present in at least 80 water bodies in Vermont, the state has approved the use of fluridone in a handful of cases, and denied it in others, depending on local conditions, according to Mulhollem. In this case, Allsopp attributed the reversal to “concerns expressed by Town water officials and others.”

During the public comment period, Rick Kenney, Hartford’s chief water system operator, wrote a letter to the DEC questioning whether the proposal did enough to protect a town well, located about 220 feet from Lake Pinneo, that provides 42 million gallons of pristine water to 2,000 Quechee residents.
