Dear Lake Neighbors and Friends,
The 2016 spot treatment of non-native invasive weeds in Lost Lake/Knops Pond is scheduled for this Tuesday June 7th.
Note that the entire lake will not be treated but about 40 acres that have the highest level of variable leaf Milfoil, Curly Leaf Pond Weed and Fanwort based on recent surveys, will be treated. Below is a copy of a map showing the areas to be treated (Note that Springy Cove will be treated with Sonar which is not indicated on the maps). These map was generated by our partner Solitude Lake Management (formerly Aquatic Control Technology) who did the full lake treatment in 2013 and the spot treatment in 2014 and 2015
Also below are copies of warning signs that will be posted on your docks by GLA volunteers in areas where (or near where) treatment will occur. Swimming is prohibited for one day following the treatment in the areas that are treated. Please review the attachments for other details.
Please let me know if you have any questions,
Brad Harper, President
