Fluridone Used to Treat Hydrilla on Lake Waccamaw

Officials have chosen fluridone because it is suppoed to point only hydrilla with no effect on other plants or animal life. The first treatment cycle will cost $196,660 for three applications and will need to be measure each year.

Rob Emens, an invasive species specialist with the state Division of Water Resources estimates that the cost will spiral to a total of nearly $500,000 this year and to $4 million within eight years.

Algae Bloom Warnings are Overblown - The New York Department of Environmental Conservation issued a toxic algae bloom warning for Black Lake, located in the northern part of New York. Blue-green algae blooms produce toxic microcystis, a chemical with potentially deadly consequences for animals and people who ingest it. Water samples taken from bloom areas were 20 times higher than the recreational contact suggested limit, causing the DEC to issue the warning.
