Pentucket Pond Fanwort Control Project

At the Annual Town meeting of 2003 the voters appropriated funding to allow the treatment of Pentucket Pond for the control of Fanwort (Cabomba). The Pentucket Pond Advisory Committee, working with the Georgetown Conservation commission has investigated and made recommendations for dealing with this problem. The Committee has established and provided a multi-year Aquatic Plant Management Plan for Pentucket Pond.  The extent of infestation and plant distribution was confirmed this spring, and partial treatment of the pond with Flouridone, a aquatic herbicide was begun. The Pentucket Pond Advisory Committee requests that the Community Preservation Committee approve and set aside funding to continue this project through the summer of 2006.
