PROJECT SUMMARY AND LOCATION: DOT has applied to DEC for an aquatic pesticide use permit to apply pesticide to waters of Lake Hood/Spenard in Anchorage to control nuisance vegetation.

The proposed products include:

  • Littora, EPA registration number 97690-53, with active ingredient diquat dibromide;
  • Sonar GENESIS, with EPA registration number 67690-54, with active ingredient Fluridone; and
  • Sonar ONE, with EPA registration number 67690-45, with active ingredient Fluridone.

Treatment with Littora is proposed to occur as needed, nor more than once a month between June and August throughout the duration of the permit. Treatment with Sonar GENESIS and Sonar ONE would occur only if invasive elodea is present, no more than once a month throughout the duration of the permit.

PROJECT NEED:  Lake Hood is an extremely busy floatplane airport. Vegetation in the water presents a safety hazard for taxiing, taking off, and landing on the lake. In addition, invasive elodea, if present, poses a threat of spreading to locations across Alaska. A pesticide use permit is required to apply pesticides to water.
