Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Project is Located: Southeast, Putnam County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to stock 485 sterile triploid grass carp (TGC) within Lake Tonetta for the control of nuisance aquatic vegetation growing within the 73 acre lake.  The northern portion of the lake is mapped as State-designated Freshwater Wetland BR-15 (Class II).  Approximately 48 acres of the lake are overgrown with nuisance aquatic vegetation, which interferes with the recreational use of the lake.  To prevent TGC from migrating from the lake into non-target water bodies, a fish barrier is also proposed to be constructed within the lake approximately 15 feet upstream of the existing Lake Tonetta dam.  The barrier would be approximately 30 feet long and extend above the normal pool elevation of the lake by approximately 2-1/2 feet.  The bottom of the barrier would be anchored with stone rip-rap.
