You will in short order be receiving a notice from Aquatechnex regarding this year’s Loon Lake Eurasian Milfoil Control Program. This notice is a form that the Washington Department of Ecology Permit requires and it provides information that they specify.
We have just completed the early summer survey of the lake, and we will be posting an interactive map here in the next day or so. The purpose of this map will be to allow you to see where the actual treatments are in relationship to your home or cabin on the lake. The treatment polygons will also have a “buffer” around them, this will visibly show you where the water use restrictions are in place after the treatment.
We will be using a Color Code system to help you understand treatment restrictions. Prior to treatment, the polygons where the herbicide will be placed will be colored yellow. On the day of treatment, the color will change to red signifying that treatment has occurred and restrictions are in place. When the sampling shows restrictions can be lifted, we will change the color again to green.
You will be able to zoom in and out, locate your property and see where you are in relationship to actual treatments. We will also be posting signs on your shoreline just before treatment.
