Update on Carp Exclusionary Zones As shown in the photos herein, the four Carp Exclusionary Zones (CEZs) installed last May were recently removed for the winter by our lake consultant, Princeton Hydro.

These devices were installed as an underwater barrier to prohibit the grass carp from entering these areas to feed on re-emergent vegetative root structures. The initial CEZ locations were chosen based on data gathered from historic studies, which showed a predominance of vegetation in these areas. To see our original article click here: Carp Exclusionary Zones.

Our goal was to determine if Lake Holiday would experience a return of growth in these areas if the grass carp were excluded. Unfortunately Lake Holiday did not experience growth in these areas during 2019 and their removal is to protect the CEZs from ice damage this winter.

The Lake Committee will work closely with Princeton Hydro during the early months of 2020, and the CEZs will be re-positioned to other areas of the lake that also previously contained significant stands of vegetation. A map noting the new locations and a request that they not be disturbed will be shared in a future article.
