LAKES — Dana Strode reports the Pollution Control Hearings Board granted a stay on the herbicide permit issued to control native aquatic plants in front of several properties on the Spokane County lake and popular trout fishery.

Strode is one of seveveral property owners who oppose the permit sought by Bruce Schwan and several other property owners who say the growth of plants has increased, making it difficult to use their boat docks.

I reported details of the controversy in this story published last month. 

The permit was issued to a licensed applicator.
