We have applied herbicides and have introduced 100s of sterile grass carp--their favorite food is hydrilla. Plus we've installed fish barriers so the carp can't escape. Charles Aquatics applied a heavy load of herbicide at the beginning of June 2007 which knocked it back, but two days later there was three inches of rain. We had scheduled for 1000 carp right after that, but we couldn't get them, and then it got too hot. 985 more carp were stocked in the north lake in September 2007 and more carp are planned for early spring 2008. We have been hampered by a shortage of money to treat the situation fully, but we continue to look at other alternatives. See above for latest update.
