A resolution to finalize a special assessment district for weed control on Buck Lake was adopted by the Township Board at its mid-October meeting -- but not without some controversy.
With its adoption, the township now has the means to assess Buck Lake property owners for the application of herbicide treatments and/or harvesting for the eradication and control of aquatic weeds and plants. http://ow.ly/7KLz30gEDl1

A significant volume of trash gets through the flood booms because they are not designed for capturing trash. When they open the floodgates, all the trash goes straight out to the bay. This is a significant source of trash and debris in our bay, which goes out to the ocean, and this isn't just a little. This is probably tons of trash every year in our own first world country. http://ow.ly/rypt30gED3O

Getting rid of milfoil in Vaseux Lake is a lot easier said than done.
According to a report by James Littley from the Okanagan Basin Water Board, rototilling the lake for the first time could create other problems.
For example, Vaseux Lake is a migratory bird reserve, with a no-motors restriction on the lake. A federal permit from Environment and Climate Change Canada was issued in November 2016 to allow milfoil control, but the water board requires a permit to conduct work in and around a stream under the B.C. Water Sustainability Act. http://ow.ly/WYRS30gBTrx

Growth of Lake Iroquois' invasive milfoil appears to have slowed on its own while a permit to kill it is in the hands of state regulators.
Residents living near the lake say they observed less growth of Eurasian water milfoil this summer than in the previous year. They have some theories about the reasons behind the change.
The record warm winter allowed plants to overwinter well and get a good start on growth in 2016 according to a Lake Iroquois Association member. In contrast, a cloudy, rainy spring in 2017 slowed proliferation of Eurasian milfoil that relies on sunlight to reach its underwater stems and stimulate growth. http://ow.ly/umVQ30gBQRy

Recent research has found that polar bears near Hudson Bay in Canada are carrying around a wide array of chemical contaminants.
Some of the chemicals included banned or restricted substances like DDT or PCBs, which have been declining in the environment in recent years. However, levels for other chemicals that have been restricted in the last few decades remained the same as previous studies — a result that confounded the researchers. http://ow.ly/rBeG30gw7of

Eutrophication is the nutrient enrichment of waters that stimulates an array of symptomatic changes that can include increased phytoplankton and rooted aquatic plant production, fisheries and water quality deterioration, and other undesirable changes that interfere with water uses. The impacts of eutrophication are more severe than recognized.
Eutrophication is most often the result of an elevated supply of nutrients, particularly nitrogen and phosphorus, to surface waters that results in enhanced production of primary producers, particularly phytoplankton and aquatic plants. http://ow.ly/eLxe30gBS8G

Introduction of invasive alien fish species has depleted the aquatic biodiversity of the State
The aquatic biodiversity in Kerala is also facing a serious threat from biological invasion. Proliferation of invasive water weeds and exotic species of fish has disrupted the riverine and lake ecosystem in the State and depleted native aquatic biodiversity, threatening the livelihood of inland fishermen.
Water hyacinth is one of the most threatening invasive species in Kerala, says A. Biju Kumar, Head, Department of Aquatic Biology and Fisheries, University of Kerala. http://ow.ly/7vKT30gw7a6
