Treatment 1: Curly Leaf Treatment

Herbicide treatments of areas within West Bay, including water directly adjacent to the inflowing channel. Public swimming areas are not included in this treatment. This treatment will include waters adjacent to the shoreline to approximately 75' offshore. This treatment consists of a contact aquatic herbicide to control specific, unwanted, submerged, non-native vegetation.

  •  Do not use water from the immediate treated areas for irrigation, sprays or for potable (drinking) water for a period of up to 7 days where treatment occurs adjacent to shorelines

There are NO RESTRICTIONS on water use from treated areas immediately following this application other than the one listed above.

 

Treatment 2: Milfoil Treatment

Herbicide treatments of areas within and adjacent to West Bay, at points around various no-wake buoys on the north side and east end of the lake and at an area near Gates 13 and 15 along the south shore. The treatment areas in West Bay and adjacent to Gates 3, 13 and 15 will include waters approximately 75' off of the shoreline to approximately 150' offshore, and areas well offshore near the buoys to the north and east (Public swimming areas are not included in this treatment). These areas are to be treated with a granular form of a selective aquatic herbicide to control specific, unwanted, submerged, non-native vegetation.

Water use restrictions are as follows:

 

  • Do not swim in the immediate treated water for a minimum of 24 hours after the application date (see above date)
  • Do not use water from the immediate treated areas for irrigation, sprays or for potable (drinking) water for a period of up to 21 days if treatment is to occur at shoreline areas
  • There are NO RESTRICTIONS on using water from treated areas for fishing immediately following this application

Treatment signs will be posted at the time of the treatment in each individual lot where the treatment is to occur near the shoreline and can be removed at the end of the next day after the treatment day.

Should the weather prevent treatments from happening on the date listed above, the treatment will occur on the next business day that the weather allows.
