These uses may resume on Thursday morning, June 20. Use of the lake water for irrigation (watering lawns, gardens or plants of any kind) is prohibited for five days post treatment. Printed posters warning of these and other temporary water use restrictions will be posted around the lake shoreline in advance of the treatment.For more information, call 499-9344.
