Marlborough, Hudson reservoir to be treated for weeds

The Ft. Meadow Reservoir in Marlborough and Hudson will be temporarily closed next week as it is treated with herbicides to control invasive weeds.

Conservation Officer Priscilla Ryder said in a statement yesterday the reservoir will be treated on Tuesday to stem the spread of Eurasian watermifoil and variable watermilfoil. Ryder said if not treated, the weeds will spread rapidly and make boating, swimming and fishing difficult.
