Transport Law in Vermont – Act 67

As of June 8, 2017, the Vermont Legislature enacted new legislation regarding aquatic nuisance control. Act 67 adds
four animals to the species list of which transport is restricted, and requires boat operators to visually inspect
their own vessels and remove drain plugs while transporting a vessel.

While the transport of ANY aquatic plant or plant parts, as well as zebra and quagga mussels, is still prohibited, it is now also prohibited to transport the following species:
❖ Asian clam (Corbicula fluminea)
❖ Fishhook waterflea (Cercopagis pengoi)
❖ Rusty crayfish (Orconectes rusticus)
❖ Spiny waterflea (Bythotrephes longimanus)

It’s time to search and pull Milfoil and record your time

Lake Morey’s waters are finally getting clear. With this clarity comes the ability to see milfoil. Barbara Duncan has found about 10 plants between her place and a neighbors along the west coast of the Lake. We encourage all of our members to be on the lookout for milfoil and to pull it out or report it if found.

As always,  if you need help identifying milfoil — we are always happy to provide samples. Contact Barbara Duncan, Adopt-A-Lake Coordinator at barbara.duncan@valley.net
Remember to record your search and pull time spent on the Adopt a-Lake form –  the accumulated hours are reported to the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation  and are credited toward the total cost of eliminating milfoil.
