Rice Lake Curly Leaf Pondweed Removal Project

The Rice Lake Association of Mercer, WI, has received a grant to remove curly leaf pondweed from the lake in order to prevent/minimize downstream contamination in the Turtle River Watershed. If this invasive weed is not controlled it will ultimately infest the Turtle Flambeau Flowage.  This year’s project is tentatively set to start around May 24th.  It focuses on hand pulling of the plant.  There are 20 paid positions at $15/hour for 80 hours available.
