Port of Vancouver approves $50K to combat milfoil at Vancouver Lake

first_imgThe Port of Vancouver will contribute $50,000 to control Eurasian milfoil in Vancouver Lake, a decision that should allow chemical treatment of the lake this summer.Port commissioners voted 3-0 Tuesday to provide $50,000 at the request of Friends of Vancouver Lake, which is working to raise about $175,000 to combat the invasive species strangling the lake in a tangle of aquatic weeds.“We are being asked to be kind of a Band-Aid at this time,” Commissioner Don Orange said. “And I think it’s probably the right thing.”Friends of Vancouver Lake also announced Tuesday that the Ed and Dollie Lynch Fund will match up to $25,000 in donations to control milfoil at Vancouver Lake.“The Ed and Dollie Lynch Fund is very pleased to be able to help save our Vancouver Lake,” the fund’s administrators said in a statement. “Our lake is a special part of the community. Rallying around doing what it takes to make it safe and healthy for all to enjoy today, as well as tomorrow, is simply the right thing to do.”last_img read more
