Croton River Hydrilla Control Project Public Stakeholder Meeting
Release Date: May 16, 2017

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Village of Croton on Hudson invite you to attend an informational meeting on the control and management of the invasive aquatic plant Hydrilla in the Croton River.

When: Wednesday, May 24, 2017 from 6:30 – 8:45 PM

Where: 2nd floor meeting room, Village of Croton Stanley H. Kellerhouse Municipal Building, Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520

Topics:

  • Brief summary of project history

  • Overview of 2017 project season

    -  aquatic plant survey

    -  herbicide treatment

    -  drinking water sampling protocol

    - additional research

The aquatic invasive plant Hydrilla verticillata was discovered in the Croton River in October 2013 and later found in Croton Bay during a site survey in 2014.  This survey also revealed that Hydrilla is well-established in the Croton River and Reservoir.  Hydrilla grows and spreads rapidly in areas where it has become established, often resulting in considerable economic and ecological impacts.  While Hydrilla remains in the Croton River and the Croton Bay, it threatens the recreation, ecology, and water quality in both the Croton River and the Hudson River and its tributaries.  Fortunately, the results of the survey conducted in 2016 indicate that Hydrilla has not yet spread outside of the Croton River.  Come learn about NYSDEC plans to contain, control, and combat Hydrilla in Croton River habitats in the summer and autumn of 2017. 

Please find the meeting agenda attached.  Additional information about the project can be found on the NYSDEC website at the following address: http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/106386.html
