The variable milfoil infestation in Phillips Brook on Leavitt Bay was treated with an aquatic herbicide as scheduled on June 16th, according to Ken Warren of the Department of Environmental Services.
Can you identify variable milfoil? How about fanwort, water chestnut and hydrilla? Can you tell the difference between these destructive weeds and beneficial plants such as native milfoil and elodea?
I am strongly opposed to this bill and the way in which it went through as it takes power away from local authorities regarding what goes on in their communities.
