This article from the Shreveport Times is says the city is NOT going to build a fence at the west end of Cross Lake to help with the salvinia problem. Instead the city is going to dump a pesticide in the lake to help control the problem. The pesticide they’re going to use costs ONLY $1800/gallon. Are you kidding me? What a great way to wreck the drinking supply of the city by dumping gallon after $1800 gallon in the drinking water.
The company the City of Shreveport is turning to for help, SePRO (from Indiana) is going to use a chemical called Galleon. I can’t believe they would want to dump this stuff in our drinking water. What do you think?
