Draw Down Performed to Control Eurasian Watermilfoil
In an effort to control invasive Eurasian watermilfoil, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) will perform a drawdown on Chestnut Hill Reservoir this winter.

The watermilfoil was found several years ago and the infestation has caused elevated water temperatures and depressed dissolved oxygen levels. The floating mats of milfoil also pose drowning hazards to wildlife and pets.

As the plants are exposed to the cold air they freeze and die. The draw- down/freeze- off curbs milfoil naturally and eliminates the use of pesticides. The plan is to perform this procedure every winter for three years.

The Hydrilla Debate of the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes - The FWC, the state's lead agency for hydrilla control since July 1, 2008, faces a daunting challenge. It not only manages the spread of non-native hydrilla by spraying herbicides to maintain waterways for boating navigation and flood control. It also must consider the wants of Florida residents while keeping the best interests of wildlife foremost in its plans.
