Coes Reservoir to Have Invasive Water Chestnuts Removed
The Worcester DPW has contracted a lake management company to use a mechanical harvester in Coes Reservoir starting on Monday, July 8, 2019, in order to address the invasive water chestnut (Trapa natans).
Over the course of the week, the harvester will be working to remove the aquatic weeds from the northern part of the Reservoir.
Mechanical harvesting is a safe and effective method for the control of water chestnut without the use of aquatic herbicides.

Massachusetts Ranked #36 in Best & Worst States to Start a Business
In their latest report — the Best & Worst States to Start a Business — the data experts at WalletHub have ranked Massachusetts 36th out of the 50 states and Washington, D.C.

There is a silver lining, however. Massachusetts is ranked #1 for the most-educated population, and — for those that like to work as little as possible — the Bay State is in the top five states for the shortest average work week.
