Weed pickup at piers begins this Saturday. The harvester makes one circle in the morning beginning at 9am. Have your floaters and rakings at the lake end of the pier. Do not include any hardscape, twigs, branches, stones which cause expensive repairs to the conveyor belts.
Cutting begins today in areas not sprayed. Sprayed areas will start cutting after June 10.
A big thanks to Ernie Roy, Larry Brady, the DNR and Wis Ag folks for their service in these efforts.
Whitewater and Rice lakes will be treated. Per DNR notice is here given with technical treatment information. The yellow areas on the maps indicate where spraying will occur. Do not irrigate lawns or flowers with lake water in these areas until June 9. The treatment has no effect on animals. The yellow WARNING signs will be posted on piers in the areas to be treated.
