We have been notified that the week of May 9th, probably Monday or Tuesday will be the lake treatment date. As we get closer to the day the exact date will be posted on facebook and this web page. . We advise you not to use your irrigation system for your lawn for at least 3 weeks after treatment. Ernie will be not be available from May 6 through May 18. If you need any assistance, contact Rich Charts during this time.
The water will be safe for humans and pets, but not for plants.
A 2-day DNR Boater’s Safety class will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 14-15 from 8am-noon at the Whitewater Town Hall (W8590 Willis Ray Road, Whitewater). This training is open to everyone at a cost of $10 per person. Wisconsin law requires that anyone born after Jan. 1, 1989 must have a boater’s safety license in order to operate a boat. This class is a good refresher for all ages and parents are encouraged to sign up along with their children. Space is limited to 20 people. Register online at https://gowild.wi.gov/.The benefit of this class is that it reviews both the state regulations and local ordinances that the Sheriff’s Patrol enforces.
