Location: Shohola, PA
Problem: Variable-leaf Milfoil
Lake and Pond Heroes: Chris Hanlon, Lake Management Sciences; PA Game Commission
1,000 acres of milfoil was displacing native plants, impairing fishing, and harming waterfowl habitat. The Pennsylvania Game Commission wanted a solution that protected native plants, restored balance back to the lake, and opened the lake up for more recreation. Chris Hanlon of Lake Management Sciences provided the latest technology in milfoil control and helped the Game Commission return the reservoir back to its natural beauty.
