An informational meeting is being held tonight by the Candlewood Lake Authority about their planned grass carp stocking program. The Authority, with the backing of the five municipalities surrounding the Lake, applied for and was awarded a grant from the state for the program. Executive Director Larry Marsicano says part of the permitting process is to hold a forum for residents to learn about this, express concerns and ask questions.
The Eurasian Milfoil can be disruptive to boaters and swimmers on the Lake.
Marsicano says there's very little that can be done when trying to manage something, that doesn't have unintended consequences. But he says this program also includes water quality monitoring, weed mapping and analysis.
Tonight's meeting is at 7pm on WestConn's midtown campus, in the science building.
