09. October 2020 · Comments Off on Year of the Weeds · Categories: AIS

2020 has been a rough year for management of aquatic invasive species on Kinderhook Lake, especially Eurasian milfoil. Nobody can be sure if this is due to recent warmer winters not allowing sediment to freeze deep enough to kill or stun weeds in areas exposed by the drawdown, the unusually good water clarity consistently 6- to 7-feet deep for two years, the constant fragmentation of weeds from boat propellors traveling through the milfoil beds, or perhaps all of these combined. What we can be sure of is that we need to address this issue with new tools in addition to using our Eco-Harvester. While our harvester collected a record amount of milfoil this year, it was unable to keep up with this summer’s explosive weed growth in the areas that harvesting is permitted by our DEC permit.

For the past several months, the KLC weed committee has been hard at work researching new options to enhance our weed management program. Committee members have had numerous discussions with DEC, three lake management firms, and several local lake associations dealing with similar issues. Through this research we have found a relatively new herbicide that specifically targets Eurasian milfoil and has been used in many lakes throughout the country for the past few years. This herbicide does not appear to harm native weeds and comes with far fewer restrictions than any other herbicide in use today. Results of these treatments have been highly successful, showing no milfoil growth the second year after use. Committee members made site visits to two local lakes that have used this herbicide in 2019 and 2020 and personally observed the positive results; in one case, native weeds have already started to emerge where milfoil used to grow.

You will be hearing more over the winter about the upcoming changes to our weed management program as we continue to research and evaluate this new option. In the meantime, if you can’t wait for further updates, feel free to Google “ProcellaCor”.

Volunteers have been hand-pulling water chestnuts at the north end of Kinderhook Lake for years and it has been paying off through a reduction in the weed beds. But we cannot take our foot off the pedal now. To continue to reduce the spread of this aquatic invasive species, this year’s water chestnut hand-pulling event is planned for Saturday, June 27, 9:00 am – 11:00 am. Volunteers are needed.

Please meet at the north end of the lake in your kayak, canoe, rowboat, raft, or any vessel that can navigate very shallow water. Don’t forget heavy gloves and perhaps a rake. A few teams of volunteers may be dispersed to various coves around the lake where new water chestnut growth has been identified. Pulled weeds will be transferred to the ECO-Harvester and brought to shore for disposal. In the event of pouring rain or lightning, the ‘pull’ will take place at the same time on Sunday, June 28. Some light refreshments may be available. Check here or on Facebook for any potential changes.

Saturday, June 22, 9:00am. Volunteers assembled at One Tree Island to start this year’s water chestnut hand pull event. Volunteers traveled up the west side of the lake along Ottoville Rd picking up hundreds of water chestnut “stragglers,” then entered the north end of the lake for two hours of pulling in the dense weed bed which, by the way, has receded about 50-feet further back due to the last few years of weed pulls. Once again battling this invasive species, an estimated four to five cubic yards of weeds were collected and removed from the lake. Thanks to all the volunteers who spent just a few hours helping to improve the quality of Kinderhook Lake: Melanie Langdon, Eric Piecuch, Doug Peterson, Tina Decker, Linda Leader, Bonnie Bargstedt, Ron Jensis, Dan and Robin Langer, Pete Walkes, Rick Theriault, Fran Sindlinger, John Bruford. If we forgot or misspelled any names, please forgive us and know that your time and assistance was greatly appreciated.

This year, some of the water chestnuts will be pulled with the ECO-Harvester. However, due to the risk of damage to the harvester drum, the harvester cannot run in the very shallow water where many of the water chestnuts are growing.

18. September 2018 · Comments Off on Kinderhook Lake Selected for Study by Grad Student · Categories: AIS, General Information, Water quality, Water treatment

Kinderhook Lake has been selected for study by a student in the Professional Science Master’s Lake Management Program at the State University of NY at Oneonta. This is the only Lake Management degree program in the US. Over the course of one year, Amanda Setteducate will study and evaluate the lake’s water quality and nutrient levels, invasive species, watershed, and issues important to the lake community. It is expected that the study will result in a report that will provide recommendations for implementation of future lake management efforts. The KLC Board of Directors and Water Quality Committee is excited to work with Amanda and is looking forward to receiving assistance from her and the Lake Management program.

You can read more at Lake Management Graduate Program. If you have any questions about the Program or what Amanda will be doing at Kinderhook Lake, you can contact her at settan29@oneonta.edu.

Weeds Piled High

Helping hands can make the difference. A record 25 volunteers showed up at the north end of the lake on Saturday morning June 23rd to hand-pull water chestnuts. This aggressive invasive species can be expensive and difficult to control, but since the roots are fairly shallow, they are easy to pull by hand. Volunteers made a huge dent in the weed bed. Offloading pulled weeds was much easier this year as volunteers were able to transfer the weeds onto the ECO Harvester conveyor belt. In a little more than two hours, the harvester bin was filled with over 2-1/2 loads of water chestnuts, which equates to about 10 cubic yards of weeds (a dump truck full). A hardy thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help – you are making a difference. See more photos on the GALLERY page.

To help reduce the spread of this aquatic invasive species, a water chestnut hand-pulling event is planned for Saturday, June 23, 9:00 am – 11:00 am. We need two dozen volunteers for this event to be successful. As in past years, please meet at the north end of the lake with your kayak, canoe, rowboat, raft, or any vessel that can navigate very shallow water. Don’t forget heavy gloves and perhaps a rake. Pulled weeds will be transferred to the ECO-Harvester and brought to shore for disposal. This year, a few teams of volunteers may be dispersed to various coves around the lake where water chestnut growth has been identified. Light refreshments will be provided. In the event of pouring rain, the ‘pull’ will take place at the same time on Sunday, June 24. Please come and be part of the solution.

Why don’t we pull the water chestnuts with the ECO-Harvester? Two reasons: (1) Our DEC permit does not allow it, and (2) There is a risk of damage to the harvester drum if we run it in the shallow water where most of the water chestnuts are growing.

A record 22 volunteers showed up at the north end of the lake on the morning of June 10th to help hand-pull water chestnuts. Due to previous year’s hand-pulling events as well as the use of our cutter boat, we had far fewer water chestnuts to deal with this year, and 22 volunteers made a huge dent in the remaining weeds. We are making a difference.

Thanks to the following volunteers who made this event so successful:

John Bruford Lisa Benfield Jen Clark
Terry and Bill Cleary Dawn and Mike Franceour Leah Gorman (Capital/Mohawk PRISM)
Jim Hodgkins Ron Jensis Bernie Kelleher
Robin and Dan Langer Linda Leader George Longworth
Diane and Doug Petersen Lisa and Steve Puvogel Bridget Roos
Dan Riozzi Rick Theriault

Additional thanks to:

  • Lisa and Steve Puvogel for allowing access to the lake across their property for our dump trailer; the dump trailer was used to transport the pulled weeds for disposal.
  • Dawn and Mike Franceour for the use of their boat to provide refreshments.
  • Steve Sigler for the use of his boat to transport the weeds to the dump trailer.

 

Check it out! Thanks to board member Ken Bosen, we have a brand new Invasive Species Disposal Station next to the access gate at the Rt. 28 launch site. Please make good use of it.
