Project Need

Elodea is an invasive aquatic plant that has the potential to grow abundantly and compromise water quality, hinder boat and float plane traffic, reduce dissolved oxygen, and impact fisheries. Control of this invasive plant will help prevent spread to other locations. Physical or mechanical controls are inappropriate, as these methods break the plant into fragments which can then reproduce.

Project Need

The presence of illegally introduced invasive Northern Pike in this area has caused the complete loss of wild native rainbow trout and rearing coho salmon. The presence of this predatory fish also threatens other valuable wild fish populations downstream in the Cottonwood Creek drainage system. The objectives of this treatment are to completely remove the Northern Pike population from these lakes. A pesticide use permit is required to apply pesticides to water.
