Aquatic Invasives Grant
Aquatic Invasives Early Detection and Response
Only small colonies of EWM. No herbicide control strategies proposed for 2015.
Signs point to successful treatment of EWM on Kentuck Lake in 2013. Post-treatment assessments found little EWM in treated areas. Monitoring for EWM will continue in 2014.
Kentuck Lake has an area of 957 acres, maximum depth of 40 ft, and a mean depth of 9.2 ft. On 3 June 2013, two areas (A-13 and B-13) totaling 17 acres (Figure 1) were treated with a liquid formulation of 2,4-D to control Eurasian water milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum). On 5 June 2013, one area (C-13) totaling 1.6 acres was treated with a granular formulation of 2,4-D to control Eurasian water milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum).
