State Rejects Milfoil Plan At Quechee’s Lake Pinneo
State regulators say they will deny the Quechee Lakes Landowners Association permission to use a chemical herbicide to treat an invasive aquatic plant, Eurasian water milfoil at Lake Pinneo.

With invasive milfoil present in at least 80 water bodies in Vermont, the state has approved the use of fluridone in a handful of cases, and denied it in others, depending on local conditions, according to Mulhollem. In this case, Allsopp attributed the reversal to “concerns expressed by Town water officials and others.”

During the public comment period, Rick Kenney, Hartford’s chief water system operator, wrote a letter to the DEC questioning whether the proposal did enough to protect a town well, located about 220 feet from Lake Pinneo, that provides 42 million gallons of pristine water to 2,000 Quechee residents.

Stormwater Pollution is Killing Coho Before Spawning - Researchers at NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle worked with collaborators, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, local tribes and the Wild Fish Conservancy, to survey 51 sites from 2000 to 2011 in streams all over the Puget Sound basin. They used the survey data with a new computer model to map predicted coho death rates. The results show that in an estimated 40 percent of their range in the Puget Sound Basin, 10 to 40 percent of coho salmon die before they can even spawn because of pollution.
