Dover Creek Lamprey Treatment to Begin

Another lampricide treatment is planned in the Copper Country. 

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service personnel will visit an area in Torch Lake offshore from Dover Creek, also known as Hungarian Creek.

The procedure is scheduled to begin as early as today, depending on weather and conditions. It will take about three days to complete.

The goal is to kill sea lamprey larvae burrowed in the lake and stream bottom.  

The lampricides used are considered harmless to humans, and most other animals. A few fish, insects and some broadleaf plants are sensitive. Officials recommend that the area be avoided while treatment is in progress.
