Notice of Chemical treatment of Eurasian Watermilfoil in Bay Lake

The Bay Lake Improvement Association conducted a Eurasian Watermilfoil survey of Bay Lake earlier this month. We will be treating 51 sites equaling 20.13 acres of Eurasian Watermilfoil in Bay Lake with Liquid 2,4-D. We expect to conduct treatments between June 17th and June 27th  weather conditions permitting.

The program has worked for 33 years and our mission statement has always been to not allow EWM to become the dominate plant species and it’s not. We will never eradicate it, but we can control it. Your support is critical to protecting the lake from invasive species such as EWM and others.

As mentioned in the Breezes article and at previous annual BLIA meetings we will not be collecting approval signatures any longer. We will assume all approve and allow those who don’t want their shorelines chemically treated to opt out of treatments by contacting me at the phone number or email listed below.

If you are OK with the Bay Lake Improvement Association treating along your shoreline for Eurasian Watermilfoil, should it need it you don’t have to do anything, we will assume you are OK with it.

To opt out of chemical treatments of Eurasian Watermilfoil on your shoreline please call, email, or write David Devins immediately and say so, describing your property by address, fire number (if you know it), Photo from the water and or neighbors on either side of you so we can properly identify your property.
