Salmon Research: Alexander Lake Elodea Eradication

Scope

The goal of this project is to expand and implement the original management plan to eradicate Elodea in Alexander Lake for the total ~500 acres.  Because Elodea is expanding its distribution rapidly, it is critical that this work be completed with a sense of urgency to eliminate Alexander Lake from being a source of infestation to other Mat-Su waters and salmon resources.  The objectives include treatment, surveying high-risk water bodies, and expanded outreach.

Timeline: Summer 2019

Project Benefits

The benefit is to prevent Alexander Lake from being a source of infestation to other Mat-Su waters and salmon resources.

Project Status

Additional material purchased through grant for another treatment.
