BeCA’s Landscaping Chairperson has contacted SC Council regarding the increased spread of red azolla across the top lake at Canavan Gracie Recreational Park. Council has been aware of the problem but was finally prompted to take action after receiving some updated photos from BeCA.
The lack of a prolonged winter chill or a heavy downpour of rain has caused the azolla to develop and not be dispersed.
As a result of BeCA’s action, Council has contracted “The Dam Doctors’ to clear the lake of much of the red azolla sometime during the next week or so.
It is impossible to clear the lake of 100% of the infestation but hopefully residents will see a huge improvement.
