Control Methods Test Year 2 Budget Projection
Click through below to see a more detailed explanation of the budget in addition to what the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and League to Save Lake Tahoe has contributed to the cause.
Year 1 Preliminary Results
*Triclopyr only affects Eurasian Watermilfoil so it is expected that other species of aquatic weeds in these treatment areas would still be in abundance.
- Both herbicides, Endothall and Triclopyr are responding as expected*
- Hydroacoustic scans are showing knock-back in most sites to meet the 75% threshold
UV-C treatments in early spring appear to have made a significant difference in efficacy
