Prevent Herbicide Treatment using Glyphosate on the Lower Moodus Reservoir: Stop the scheduled treatment and use alternate methods.

Glyphosate has been associated with harmful effects on wildlife beyond the scope of its target. There is conflicting information on the safety of its use and it seems that it should not be applied to a public reservoir that is accessed by children, pets, and native wildlife.

 

Addtional information on the scheduled treatment can be found here:http://thehaddams-killingworth.patch.com/groups/around-town/p/deep-oks-glyphosate-to-be-sprayed-in-lower-moodus-reservoir?ncid=newsltuspatc00000010

Letter to
Deep and the Town of East Haddam
Stop the scheduled treatment and use alternate methods. A growing volume of research shows that glyphosate can be damaging to wildlife and humans. We should carefully consider all other options before resorting to the use of this chemical.
