Firewood Policy for St. Paul District Recreation Areas and Other Project Lands
The St. Paul District recently developed a firewood policy for district recreation and project areas that addresses the potential movement of Emerald ash borer and other firewood-borne pests.
Flowering Rush: Controlling an Invasive Species through Innovation and Partnership with the Walla Walla District
Flowering rush is an aggressive, non-native aquatic weed which has invaded many lakes, rivers and reservoirs in the Pacific Northwest, Midwest and Great Lakes regions. Of particular concern in the Columbia River Basin, is the impact of flowering rush on spawning habitat for native salmonid species. One of the challenges of using aquatic herbicides to manage aquatic vegetation growing in flowing water systems, is achieving sufficient herbicide-plant contact time for successful plant control. This video summarizes a unique approach to overcome this challenge by utilizing a bubble barrier system to curtail water flow, confine herbicide treatment, improve weed control, all while reducing impacts to non-target species. This project was initiated in 2018 with funding from the Aquatic Plant Control Research Program and addresses a research Statement of Need submitted by the Walla Walla District. It also represents a collaboration between the ERDC-EL, USACE Walla Walla District, USDA-ARS, and industry partners.

Help provide samples of Hydrilla vegetation from Corps reservoirs this fall and winter Current known locations of the cyanobacteria on Hydrilla
Plant collection protocol
Dr. Susan Wilde, UGA is requesting assistance from Corps for this fall and winter. The purpose of the sampling is to detect additional occurrences of a new cyanobacteria that is a causal factor in AVM. She has confirmed the bacteria on Hydrilla at multiple reservoirs and it appears to be moving north.
If you are willing to provide her with samples should contact her first to let her know samples are coming and to obtain a copy of the APHIS permit required to ship this invasive species.

USACE USBR Partnering for Invasive Vulnerability Assessments. Submitted by Michael Watkins, NWK
The Bureau of Reclamation has assembled assessment teams consisting of an engineer and a biologist that are specially trained to conduct Facility Vulnerability Assessments for dams and power plants. These teams are available to conduct FVAs for other government agencies at a reasonable cost. In 2010 KCD MIPRed funds to BOR and their assessment teams conducted Facility Vulnerability Assessments for our 18 lake projects including two hydro power plants at a cost of $109,492.00. The assessment teams visited each lake project and produced a report that outlines potential problem areas if the lakes were to become infested with Dreissenid Mussels.
