Published October 14th, 2004

MONTPELIER, Vt. A move to keep Carp out of the Great Lakes could help efforts to control invasive species in Lake Champlain.

Last week Congress appropriated money to build an electric barrier in the Illinois River near Chicago to stop Asian carp from entering Lake Michigan.

Now Jeffords in seeking approval for similar barrier in the Champlain Canal at the southern end of Lake Champlain.

Invasive species in the Great Lakes could wind up in Champlain through the Champlain Canal, which links the lake to the Hudson River.

The Senate is considering authorizing a new aquatic federal invasive species act. The bill includes language that would give 500-thousand dollars to study the prospect of barrier in Lake Champlain.
