Default Farmington River didymo

Apparently after 2 quiet years the didymo outbreak has spread

Quote:
As of December 2012, a bloom of didymo has created a thick layer on much of the stream bottom in the West Branch of the Farmington River between the Route 20 bridge, near the former Hitchcock Chair Factory, and the confluence with the Still River (approximately 1 km downstream) in Riverton as indicated on the map to the right. At this time, while didymo can be transported downstream via stream current, we have not identified any downstream areas with significant didymo growth, except for along the eastern bank of the Farmington River for approximately 200 meters below the confluence.

With the expansion of the trout management area through this section of the river fishing is open year round. However, with the upcoming annual opening day fishing derby in Riverton, we expect lots of people-many from outside of the area and who may not be familiar with didymo at all, and many regulars who may not realize it is present at this location, to be fishing directly in and on the didymo mats. Please take this opportunity to review and remind your members and the general public of appropriate CHECK, CLEAN, DRY procedures to prevent transport of didymo either upstream or to other waters.

That's terrible news. I hope they put wash stations at main access points up and down stream of the affected areas.

Even though I think it's a very Good Idea to have The Wash Stations which need constantly checking I am wondering what is being done to get rid of this Intrusive Pest also after reading where lots of people are against Banning Felt Soles I think all other Soled Boots should be washed as well because if they aren't Clean they can transport it as well.
The main trouble from observing some not all of Fishers I feel some people just don't care as it's been brought in from somewhere.
