KERR LAKE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT OUT FROM CORPS OF ENGINEERS – KLPW VIEW? JURY IS STILL OUT TOO

YOU HAVE UNTIL MAY 31st TO MAKE YOUR OPINION ON KNOWN AND COUNT WITH THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS.  Kerr Lake Park Watch recently received the just completed environmental assessment (EA) prepared by the US Army Corps of Engineers.  The EA as it is called discusses the environmental impacts of the Aquatic Vegetation Management Program (AVMP) at the John H. Kerr Dam and Reservoir Project (Kerr Reservoir).

The intent of the AVMP is to reduce and avoid adverse impacts associated with uncontrolled growth of hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata) in the Reservoir.



The Corps of Engineers is encouraging people with information and/or opinions on HYRDRILLA to make sure the Corps receives any public comment regarding the EA no later than May 31, 2013.

The EA can be found at the following link:

KLPW, in reading the document in a scan only mode only has one assessment at this point:  The US Army Corps of Engineers has again stopped short of taking full responsibility for the lake which it fully, totally and unconditionally owns outright.  We think the Corps should do much more than just regulate spraying; spraying that is at a cost to everyone but the Corps.
