Cornell Lake Treatment for Eurasian Mil-foil is scheduled for: Tuesday, June 20th, 2017
Selected areas of Cornell Lake will receive a chemical treatment to control the exotic aquatic plant known as Eurasian water milfoil. This non-native plant can interfere with navigational and recreational activities as well as harming native lake weeds.
The chemicals will not be applied if the applicators feel conditions are unsafe, such as storms, heavy rain or high winds. We have allowed June 23rd as a rain date.
The recommended precautions after treatment are as follows:
NO swimming for 1 day
NO garden watering for 21 days
We have instituted a phone message system that enables lake users to call in at any time and get an update. The message will indicate if the treatment took place as scheduled, and if not what plans have been made for the rescheduled treatment. To access this information line, dial 367-4681 and follow the instructions.
