Lake Gaston Technical Advisory Group
(TAG)

Gaston Dam


The TAG is comprised of roughly 10 experts in the area of fish habitat and the management & control of noxious weeds. Yes, for an impoundment like Lake Gaston to become or remain a healthy fishery, there is a need for aquatic vegetation. This Team is tasked with the responsibility of understanding the current Lake environment and using all control tools available to recommend management options focused on an eco-solution. This plan will be presented to the Weed Control Council for implementation. Actual treatment under the new plan will not begin until 2007.
