We’ve been experiencing trouble with our home reservoir. In one large area of the reservoir called Pelahatchie bay, we had a rash of giant salvinia starting to take over. If you don’t know what this is, you’re probably better off since it most likely wouldn’t have invaded your waterways. It’s a super fast growing plant, much like cudzo on land. It gets transplanted by clinging to boats, birds, logs, etc. about the only way they know to get rid of it is to drop the level of the water, and hope for a freeze that last several days. That, and burning it. They have it about 90% contained now, and still have Pelahatchie Bay closed off to all forms of boating. Our neighborhood boat ramp is closed off until they feel that they have eliminated the threat. We have to take our boat to a larger boat ramp to launch and retrieve the Benny.
