STORMWATER NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS
City of Duluth - mosquito prevention program
The City of Duluth has a mosquito prevention program in place to minimize mosquito breeding. Each year, our stormwater inspectors drop approximately 800 mosquito briquettes containing a targeted natural bacterial agent in our catch basins, ponds, and low lying areas of ponding water. While the briquettes are not harmful to the stormwater system or the aquatic life at the end of the system, they keep the mosquitoes from multiplying in our drainage system. This year we anticipate the distribution of the briquettes to start in April/May. Then we will make another round with the briquettes in July/August as needed.
