Herbicide Treatment of Main and West Beach Swim Area Scheduled for May 24

Fri May 20, 2022

On Tuesday morning, May 24, Hey and Associates, Inc. will be conducting the annual beach herbicide treatment at Main Beach and West Beach swimming areas. The swimming areas will be treated with a granular form of a non-selective herbicide to control a broad spectrum of submersed aquatic vegetation and the bottom-growing algae, Chara.

Do not use lake water from the public beaches (treatment areas) for irrigating plants, as drinking water (human or pet) or for mixing sprays for agricultural or ornamental plants for a period of 7 days from the application date. There are no fishing or swimming restrictions post-treatment listed on the product labels.

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.
