Following months of effort by lake manager Jim Graybill and every member of our board of directors — today the DEQ issued FLPOA the NPDES General Permit that allows us to spray herbicide to stop the spread of weeds in the lake.
Thanks to a tremendous financial response from members, we have the needed funding to carry out the action if/when needed. The next benchmark is to closely monitor the growth of the weeds this year. When they reach the target height, we will take action.
You will be notified before underwater spraying takes place. It is not harmful to pets, swimmers or wildlife. Just prior to spraying, the lake will be lowered 18″ below full. This will still leave plenty of water for boating.
Thanks to everyone involved.
