Controlling Invasive Species is Topic of Candlewood Lake Today Cable TV program

A new public affairs program shows how GPS technology is being use to track and help stop the spread of invasive species.

Controlling aquatic invasive species is the topic of the next Candlewood Lake Today public access cable TV program. 

The talk show features an interview with Greg Bugbee, a scientist with the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station in New Haven, who describes the invasive plant species that currently inhabit or threaten Candlewood Lake and the benefits and drawbacks of various control tactics and technologies. 

Mr. Bugbee also reports on a unique effort to monitor and map the spread of invasive species, such as Eurasian watermilfoil, via GPS technology.

The 30-minute episode will air again on February 4 at 8 p.m. on Charter Cable TV CommunityVision21.
