2020 Herbicide Treatment Planned for June

2020 Herbicide Treatment Planned for June

Lake Zoar is scheduled for herbicide treatment during the third week of June, between June 15 and 19, 2020, to be applied by SOLitude Lake Management. The lake will be chemically treated with Reward (Diquat) herbicide to control the aquatic nuisance plants Eurasian watermilfoil and curlyleaf pondweed.

The exact treatment date is dependent on coordination of power plant operations with weather conditions. The treatment areas will be similar to 2019, with few changes to maximize effectiveness.


More site details and official public notice to follow.

Prior to treatment, the lake shoreline (in the treatment areas and at public access sites) will be posted with printed signs in accordance with DEEP requirements.
