Full Lake Herbicide Application on Lake Mary Jess, 5/29

Starting 5/29/19 The Environmental Protection Division will be performing a full lake aquatic plant herbicide treatment.

This treatment is part of an ongoing effort to manage hydrilla in the lake.

Do not use treated water to irrigate hydroponic crops, greenhouse/nursery plants or any food crops for 90 days or until concentration of active ingredient is less than 1ppb. This concentration will be determined by routine water sampling and quantitative testing (FasTEST) by SePRO Corp.
