Next FC/SC WP Meeting on ZOOM: May 26; Aquatic Plant and Algae Control Options in Man-Made Ponds and Small Lakes with Keith Gray of ILM
Most ponds are collection points for sediment and nutrients leading to conditions that increasingly support nuisance aquatic plant and/or algae growth. Decomposing yard waste, fertilizers, erosion, and animal waste (goose droppings) accelerate the degradation of water bodies. There are hundreds of species of algae and new aquatic invaders to be aware of. Proactive and reactive approaches to their control will be reviewed. The causes of unwanted vegetative growth as well as the pros and cons of logical options to prevent or control its growth will be reviewed in non-scientific terms.
