August 13th – Lake Treatment
The lake treatment was completed on Tuesday, August 13 by All Habitat over an eight hour period. All shoreline areas were treated with special emphasis on the northeast cove along Lake Shore Drive, the marina area at the campground and the dam area in the east and west side channels.
Thank you to all of the Friends who monitored the treatment from shore and the dam parking lot to insure that the public was made aware of the treatment in progress.
The lake was treated with Reward (Diquat) as in previous years in accordance with the permit issued by Connecticut DEEP. Reward is a contact herbicide that interferes with the photosynthesis process of the plant. Any part of the plant that is contacted by Reward will die, usually within a few days. Other than refraining from using the lake water for drinking for a period of three days there are no restrictions on lake use after the treatment.
