Invasive-plant Plan Would Employ Herbicide

Alaska Department of Natural Resources

An Herbicide is proposed to eradicate an invasive weed that’s infested some Fairbanks area waters. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the chemical application would target Elodea (ell-O-dee-a), a prolific aquatic weed known to choke out native plants and fish, and inhibit navigation.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
