Beginning December 20th, 2017 and for the next four to six weeks, the Town will have its contractor treat the pond in Jarvis Creek Park to reduce the outbreak of Duckweed. This naturally occurring floating plant has propagated to excessive levels. After these initial treatments, herbivorous fish will be released into the pond for future biological control of this weed and other unwanted aquatic vegetation.
