Lake and Pond Heroes: Kathy Gillespie & Alan Stewart, Friends of Vancouver Lake; Terry McNabb, AquaTechnex
Kathy Gillespie and Alan Stewart had watched their lake, an important economical asset to the community, become riddled with invasive weeds. Vancouver Lake hosts important rowing events each year, and was in danger of losing their host lake status. That’s when they turned to Terry McNabb of AquaTechnex. He introduced them to a unique chemistry that would not harm the ecosystem while targeting the invasive weeds. After years of weeds, it took only one month for the milfoil to be combated.
