2018 Public Beach Spring Herbicide Treatments Scheduled

Mon May 14, 2018

On Tuesday morning, May 22nd, Hey and Associates, Inc. will be conducting the annual spring beach herbicide treatment at both Main Beach and West Beach swimming areas. Both swimming areas will be treated with a granular form of selective aquatic herbicide to control submersed aquatic vegetation and with a granular formulation of an algaecide to treat chara, a type of algae that grows in the shallower areas on the lake bed.


Do not swim in treated water for a minimum of 24 hours after application. 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. Fishing will not be restricted after application.


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. For more information, contact Hey and Associates, Inc. at 847-740-0888.
