Another round of chemical weed treatment is planned around Goguac Lake on Monday, Sept. 25.
If needed, the backup treatment day is Tuesday, Sept. 26. The treatment is coordinated by the city and the state Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy. Most of Monday’s treatment will be for water lily control, with some for Cabomba, another aquatic plant.
The team applying the treatments will post signs in the treated areas of the lake asking neighbors and visitors to stay off the water in those areas for 24 hours. This is so the treatments have time to reach the intended weed species in the water and work effectively.
If a person does go into the lake while the treatment signs are posted, we recommend showering after leaving the lake. The treatments are tested and determined to be safe for this use in the lake.
You can see a lake map on our website showing the various treatments in the following areas: around Honey Lane and Sunnyside Drive; Wa Wee Nork Drive and Waupakisco Beach; George B Place/Breezy Bluff Street; County Club Drive; Lynwood Drive, Bayshore Drive, and Bay Pointe Street; and Lakeshore Drive and Sherman Drive.
