Over six tons of carp removed from Moses Lake, June 4, 2020

At the beginning of May, Grant County Conservation District and Moses Lake Watershed Council teamed up to address the problem of blue-green algae in Moses Lake. The pair of organizations received a grant from the Washington Department of Ecology and enlisted a commercial netter from the Tri-Cities to remove carp from the lake.

The project ran May 6-10. Nets were placed at locations near Connelly Park “in an effort to test the viability of physical removal of common carp from the waterway,” the conservation district wrote in an email.
