Lake Desire Residents:
Weed abatement update
· Safe to irrigate with lake water again After the second round of milfoil herbicide treatment, lab tests of lake water collected last Wednesday revealed that the herbicide (2,4-D) levels in the lake are now well below the level needed to resume irrigation with Lake water. So, it is again safe to use lake water for any sort of irrigation. (According to the herbicide label: “…the water must not be used (for irrigation) unless … an approved assay indicates that the 2,4-D concentration is 100 ppb (parts per billion) or less…”. The two Sept. 3 water samples collected at two locations at Lake Desire came back at “ < 1 ppb”, so well under the minimum threshold).
· Milfoil control follow-up survey On Thursday, September 11 we will be surveying the lake to see how effective the milfoil herbicide treatment was. We will be using an electric motor boat and mapping what we see. Anecdotal results indicate the herbicide was effective.
· Follow-up water lily spraying on Thursday, Sept. 11 On Thursday, September 11 we will be spot-spraying remaining fragrant water lily plants. Signs will be posted at property waterfronts and at the boat launch. There are no swimming, fishing, or irrigation restrictions associated with this work. We will be using an aquatic formulation of glyphosate, the same as in previous treatments.
