Millfoil Removed at Walla Walla Point Park


Wenatchee, Wa.- It’s the harvest season on the Columbia River but you won’t find the crop at your local farmers market. Steve Hair reports . 

Chelan County PUD continues its annual Millfoil eradication program on the Columbia River. Crews were busy removing the annoying weeds from the swimming lagoon at Walla Walla Point Park. Millfoil is considered an invasive weed that also is a public safety hazard for swimmers and boaters.  After harvesting, the Millfoil is then dumped and stored on nearby PUD property for mulch recycling purposes.

The annual program will be featured on an upcoming Green Thumbs and Dirty Knees episode with WSU Master Gardner, Bonnie Orr and Dan Kuntz.
