State Blocks Chemical Treatment at Stockbridge Bowl

The goal is to use the town's current weed harvester in tandem with a new mobile trailer-conveyor hooked to a pickup truck to dump harvested weeds at the town beach and the town-owned parking lot by the waterfall at the lake's outlet. The weeds would be transported to property owned by a landscaper, where he would turn them into mulch.

Fertilizer Ordinances Protect Lakes - When fertilizer is used near the lake, phosphorus enters the waterbody in storm runoff. Phosphorus is a nutrient for milfoil and other aquatic plants. In addition, it can create algae blooms, turn the water green, cloud the water, cause odor problems, and deplete the oxygen for fish and other species, effectively suffocating them.
