10 DAY WARNING – TO MAKE COMMENT ON HYDRILLA TO US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS
It’s very simple. You have ten days to make your voice heard on the issue of Hydrilla in Kerr Lake in response to the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Environmental Assessment. If you do not respond, things are likely to stay the same which means the continued spread of Hydrilla in Kerr Lake.
The position of Kerr Lake Park Watch is simple. The lake belongs outright to the US Army Corps of Engineers, period. The Corps has been slow to acknowledge hydrilla’s existence and then set itself up as the approval center for spray control activities by private entities. KLPW sees this posture as unacceptable.
Whatever your particular beliefs or position, understand that this is the federal government and without public input, nothing will happen, nothing will change except continued Band-Aid treatments.

Army Corps – You are the owners of Kerr
Lake and therefore you are responsible for the Hydrilla in the lake. Unless
you do this across the lake, the Hydrilla will continue to grow. You are
hurting the tourism to the lake and therefore the businesses on the lake
