Maine is so frustrated with the spread of hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata) in Limerick's Pickerel Pond that they're considering dousing the pond with the herbicide fluridone. They expect it will reduce pond vegetation by about 95%, but this doesn't seem so bad when compared to the alternative situation, where the hydrilla ends up wiping out all pond life. Read more about it in this article from the Press Herald.
