The Iowa Department of Natural Resources, local government entities, area protective agency representatives and the general public met to discuss a possible plan of action for next year. A mechanical harvester will likely be part of the plan again this year, with the possible addition of aquatic herbicides in certain areas.

Degraded Condition of Georgica Pond - Georgica Pond is eutrophic, with excessive nitrogen inputs from ground and surface water runoff feeding dense plant life, the decomposition of which is blamed for choking the pond of oxygen, the condition known as hypoxia. To combat that decomposition, the Friends of Georgica Pond Foundation has operated an aquatic weed harvester in recent summers to remove macroalgae before its decomposition can promote blooms of cyanobacteria, the blue-green algae that have beset the pond annually.
