The Elkhart Lake Improvement Association intends to apply for a permit from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to treat up to 23 acres of water in Elkhart Lake with aquatic herbicides to control Eurasian Watermilfoil and Curlyleaf Pondweed. The proposed treatment would occur between April 8 and October 1, 2014.
The Elkhart Lake Improvement Association will conduct a public informational meeting on the proposed treatment if five or more individuals, organizations, special units of government, or local units of government request one. The meeting would give interested parties a chance to learn more about the proposed treatment from the permit applicant. The Elkhart Lake Improvement Association is not required to, but may, change the proposed treatment based on information provided by citizens attending the meeting.
Any request for a public meeting on this proposed treatment must be made within five (5) days after this notice is published. The request must specify the topics to be discussed at the meeting, including the problems and alternatives, and must be sent in writing to Elkhart Lake Improvement Association (insert address) and to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, 9531 Rayne Rd., Suite IV, Sturtevant, WI 53177.
This Public Notice is required by Chapter NR107, Wisconsin Administrative Code.
