Army Corps of Engineers deploys tracer dye in Connecticut River to combat invasive plant

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will apply tracer dye to the Connecticut River throughout the month to improve understanding of water exchange dynamics.
The move forms part of a concerted effort to control the spread of the invasive hydrilla plant.
The project is scheduled at four designated test sites: Keeney Cove in Glastonbury, Chapman Pond in East Haddam, Chester Boat Basin in Chester and Soldon Cove in Lyme.
