Preserving Elkhart Lake for generations to come

Elkhart Lake Improvement Association apply for permit to apply herbicides

March 19th, 2015 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized

The Elkhart lake Improvement Association is applying for a permit from the Wisconsin Department of  Natural Resources to apply herbicides for the control of the aquatic plant species, Eurasian Water Milfoil and Curly Leaf Pondweed for the 2015 season. We did not apply herbicides in 2014.

This is just one important method of controlling the spread of invasive plants.        If left alone, invasive plants can negatively impact the fish and native plant population in the lake.

Only problem areas, where hand pulling is not feasible, will be considered for treatment

Any questions that you may have can be directed to:  Nancy Hanlon

This notice is required under Chapter NR 107 of the WI Administration code.
