    Thursday June 28th: PINE LAKE WEED TREATMENT

    The treatment of Pine Lake for Eurasian Milfoil control is scheduled for Thursday, June 28th, 2018
    (Weather permitting)

    Selected areas identified on the map 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 29th as a rain date. If conditions still do not allow treatment, you will be notified.

    The recommended precautions after treatment are as follows:
    NO swimming for 1 day
    NO garden watering for 21 days.

    Should you not want this treatment, please notify the Village Hall prior to this date. Call us even if you have a standing no spray request.


    Statewide Effort to Reduce Spread of Aquatic Invasive Species, June 29 – July 4

    (WAUKESHA, WI) – In anticipation of the busy Fourth-of-July holiday week, Waukesha County will be participating in the 10th Annual Statewide Landing Blitz from June 29 – July 4 at launches throughout the county. Waukesha County Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) staff, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources boat inspectors, and volunteers will be handing out towels to remind boaters how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species between lakes, rivers and streams.

    “The Landing Blitz is the pinnacle of our summer invasive species prevention efforts,” says Brad Steckart, Washington and Waukesha County Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator. “We are able to reach a lot of people because the holiday week draws so many boaters to the water.”

    The statewide effort will build on the success of last year’s campaign, when volunteers inspected over 14,000 boats and spoke with over 32,000 people. “One of the most exciting things about this campaign is the strong volunteer effort. Every year, hundreds of concerned citizens participate as volunteers to help us raise awareness and empower boaters,” says Bob Wakeman, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator.

    The following steps are required by state law to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species:

    • INSPECT boats, trailers and equipment for attached aquatic plants or animals.
    • REMOVE all attached aquatic plants and animals.
    • DRAIN all water from boats, motors, live wells, vehicles, and equipment
    • NEVER MOVE plants or live fish away from a waterbody.
    • DISPOSE of unwanted bait in the trash
    • BUY minnows from a Wisconsin bait dealer.

    Social media users can help spread the word about the importance of aquatic invasive species prevention by posting photos and messages using #CleanBoatsCleanWaters.
