2016 Pond/Lake Management Workshops - Coming Soon...Have you ever experienced an algae bloom? Fish kill? Murky water? Or do you just want to know what's going on in a lake or pond?
Nebraska Extension, Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, Nebraska Game and Parks, and the Lower Platte South NRD will present a lake/pond management introductory workshop. This workshop is free and open to everyone who makes pond/lake management decision or anyone who just wants to learn more. There is no cost to attend this workshop, but pre-registration is required.
Workshop topics include:
- How lakes function in Southeast Nebraska characteristics and challenges
- Managing for fisheries
- Project funding and regulations
- Lake management planning
- Resolving Common Maintenance Problems (Algae, leaks, undesirable fish, fish kills, clarity, erosion, nuisance animals)
- Develop an individualized maintenance plan for your pond
The DNA of a virus usually only found in algae may be able to infect humans as well, according to a study from researchers at UNL and Johns Hopkins.
