FWC conducts aquatic plant control on Lake Harris

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has finalized the spring hydrilla management plans for the Harris Chain of Lakes in Lake County. The areas identified for management were selected to help maintain access and navigation throughout the Harris Chain of Lakes.

The spring hydrilla treatment plan for these lakes incorporates stakeholder input received from the recent public meeting hosted by the FWC on April 2.

The Lake County Water Authority approved funding from its 2018-2019 budget to supplement the FWC’s hydrilla management efforts on the Harris Chain of Lakes.

Treatments will start the week of April 29 and continue throughout the month of May, weather permitting. The FWC will continue to monitor the lakes after treatments are completed.
