Aquatic Herbicide Treatment of Non-Native Species - 5.18.23

Time: 7:00 AM

Location: Crystal Lake

On Wednesday morning, May 17, 2023, Hey and Associates, Inc. will be conducting herbicide treatments of areas within West Bay, mainly in the area between the channel from the north and Rumsey’s Point. The treatment areas in West Bay will include waters approximately 50’off of the shoreline to approximately 200’ offshore (Public swimming areas are not included in this treatment). The target areas are to be treated with a liquid formulation of a selective aquatic herbicide to control specific, unwanted, submerged, non-native vegetation.

Water use restrictions are as follows:

  • At the application rate prescribed, treated water may be used immediately with no waiting period for drinking (potable) water (including watering livestock and pets), fishing or swimming
  • Do not use water from the immediate treated areas for irrigation or sprays for a period of 14 days if treatment is to occur at shoreline areas (immediate shoreline areas will not be treated)

Treatment signs will be posted at the time of the treatment in each individual lot if the treatment is to occur near the shoreline and can be removed at the end of the next day after the treatment day. Should the weather prevent this treatment from happening on the date listed above, the treatment will occur on the next business day that the weather allows.
