The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Wilmington District, has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) which discusses the impacts of implementing the Aquatic Vegetation Management Program (AVMP) for John H. Kerr Dam and Reservoir, North Carolina and Virginia.

The purpose of the AVMP would be to serve as a planning tool to maintain a healthy and sustainable reservoir ecosystem dominated by native aquatic vegetation, and to address recent increases of invasive aquatic vegetation, primarily hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata).

As of 2012, 888 acres out of 48,900 lake surface acres were identified as being infested with hydrilla. The EA evaluates the environmental impacts associated with control methods including chemical, use of triploid grass carp, hand removal of vegetation, as well as planting native aquatic vegetation.

The EA document may be downloaded from the website:

The public is invited to provide written comments on the EA during a 30-day review period and must be received no later than May 31, 2013.

Written comments may be submitted to Mr. Robert Dennis, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 1930 Mays Chapel Road, Boydton, Virginia 23917. Questions or comments can be emailed to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call (434) 738-6101, ext. 160.
