SALISBURY / LEICESTER — There will be no swimming at Branbury State Park, or anywhere on Lake Dunmore and Fern Lake, this Wednesday and Thursday because a herbicide will be pumped into the water to kill invasive aquatic plants.
The Lake Dunmore Fern Lake Association is treating the two bodies of water with herbicides called Renovate OTF and Renovate 3 (active ingredient triclopyr) to help get rid of Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum, EWM). The application of the herbicide is slated for Wednesday.
MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Education Secretary Rebecca Holcombe on June 22 will bring to order the first-ever meeting of the newly created Addison Central School District Board.
