The battle continues in the fight against Eurasian watermilfoil on the canals of West Lake Okoboji in Iowa.
According to Mike Hawkins, fisheries biologist, treatment of the infected areas took place on Sept. 20 using the fast-acting herbicide called ProcellaCOR. This was the result of the decision made by the Iowa DNR and a local task force of community stakeholders on Aug. 8 to treat the impacted area of 19 acres. Jason Euchner, DNR Aquatic Vegetation Biologist, handled the treatment.
