Where: 2nd floor meeting room, Village of Croton Stanley H. Kellerhouse Municipal Building, 1 Van Wyck Street, Croton-on-Hudson, NY

Topics Include:

  • Brief summary of project history
  • 2017 season project results
  • Modifications to the NYSDEC Five Year Management Plan
  • Plans for 2018 season
  • NYC Department of Environmental Protection plans to address the New Croton Reservoir Hydrilla infestation

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.  In 2017, NYSDEC and its contractor treated the Croton River with a low concentration of the herbicide fluridone for almost four months while monitoring the Village of Croton drinking water.  Learn about the results of this field season and plans for the next.  Please note this meeting will be televised.

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