2015 Weed Treatments

Our Eurasian Water Milfoil & Curly Leaf Pondweed were treated on Monday morning, June 15th.  Treatments for the developed shoreline were treated that afternoon.

  In total 2.5 acres of EWM and CLPW were treated with 2-4d by Savin Lake Services.  All was in the south bay.

Treatments along the developed shoreline are new this year and are possible because of the new Special Assessment District  (which runs 2015-2019).  
Approximately  27.5 acres of developed shoreline and canal were treated for control nuisance weeds and algae.  This was the first of three shallow water treatments for 2015.

(Click here to see the June 15th treatment map.)

On July 27th the canal received the second of three budgeted nuisance weed control treatments for 2015.  A "muck busting" agent was also applied which is intended to reduce the levels of decaying vegetation (muck), thereby reducing weed growth and hopefully reduce the need for historic aggressive weed control treatments. 

The developed shoreline was also spot-treated for weeds and thoroughly treated for algae control.

(Treatment map for July 27 is not yet available.)

Lilly pad control treatments will occur in mid-August, when those plants are in their aggressive growth cycle.  The objective is to have the product pulled into their root system thereby killing the roots for systemic, longer lasting control.
