Aquatechnex biologists will be performing the first Eurasian Milfoil survey of the year this week on Sunday and Monday. This will involve our boats collecting hydro-acoustic data to map shape and location of aquatic plant beds, and visiting those sites to determine species composition. We will also be hosting a tour of the lake with the Steering Committee members Monday afternoon and reporting to their meeting Monday evening.
The Washington Department of Ecology has issued a new permit to utilize the new aquatic herbicide Procellacor with treatments allowed after July 5th. It is our objective to have Loon Lake treated early the following week. This product places no restrictions on water use for drinking supply, swimming or fishing. You can use the lake water to irrigate turf grass with no restriction. There is a 24 hour restriction on using water from treatment areas to irrigation other plant species.
