Once Pristine Wawayanda Lake Struggles to Live Again
In 2008 the Department of Environmental Conservation stepped in to save Wawayanda Lake from the northern snakehead which could have destroyed all life in the lake and spread to other water systems in the area.

The northern snakehead, an invasive species that eats most native fish must have been thrown into the lake. It has sharp teeth and the amazing abilities to actually move on land and breathe air.

After the DEC removed over 220 northern snakehead from the lake, of which most were breeding and reproducing juvenile fish, and then treating the waters with rotenone. The DEC removed about 16,000 pounds of fish, of which about 10,000 pounds were carp, which eat vegetation and help to keep the lake bottom clean. The DEC promised to return the lake to its pristine condition.
