State Blocks Chemical Treatment at Stockbridge Bowl

The Department of Environmental Protection on Tuesday rejected an appeal by the association, which was pushing for the use of the herbicide fluridone to combat a weed infestation at the southern tip of the lake.

The goal is to use the town's current weed harvester in tandem with a new mobile trailer-conveyor hooked to a pickup truck to dump harvested weeds at the town beach and the town-owned parking lot by the waterfall at the lake's outlet. The weeds would be transported to property owned by a landscaper, where he would turn them into mulch.

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.
