CommentsManaged for Hydrilla and Parrotfeather in 2019. Unsure of continued management since then, but treatment in 2019 did not eradicate infestation. Was working for Solitude at the time. Cathy McGlynn should be aware of the infestation due to its proximity to Susquehanna and Spencer Pond/Little Nanticoke Creek Hydrilla management project.
