Drawdown at Children's Lake to Kill off Nuisance Plants
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission recently lowered the water level at Children’s Lake to control vegetation growth.

Lowering the water level exposes aquatic plant life to the cold air causing it to freeze and die off, township supervisor Tom Faley said. He added there are places where the water level is down by as much as 75 percent, prompting water fowl to walk on the lake bottom or swim in puddles.

Aquatic plants provide very good habitat for both young and adult fish, as well as aquatic insects. However, too much vegetation can negatively impact fishing and boating opportunities and has the potential to disrupt the balance of fish population in a lake.

Judge Wants EPA to Enforce Everglades Pollution Rules - U.S. District Judge Alan Gold frustrated by the repeated delays and “disingenuous” legal maneuvers by state lawmakers and agencies; will strip authority from the state to issue critical pollution discharge permits for the state’s $1.2 billion network of nutrient-scrubbing marshes and give it to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA plan is calling for a 42,000 acre, $1.5 billion expansion of the state’s existing network of reservoirs and pollution treatment marshes, which are designed to absorb phosphorous that runs from sugar farms, cattle pastures, and suburban lawns.
