The first round of treatment for European frog-bit in an East Grand Rapids waterway was successful.
PLM Lake and Land Management conducted treatment on Sept. 27 for the invasive species in the Reeds and Fisk Lake channel. Post-treatment tests have indicated no European frog-bit is actively growing in the channel.
As the buds for the invasive plant can remain in sediment for up to 24 months, PLM will continue to monitor the channel for the City for at least the next two years.
