Weed Treatment Scheduled for the South Basin in Bass Lake

During a recent survey Aquatic Control, Inc. (a BLCD Contractor and certified applicator in Aquatic Pest Control) found native plants on almost every rake throw in the south basin. Primarily vegetation found was variable and sago pondweed. In addition, they also found Sago, small, variable and curly leaf pondweed as well as spatterdock and white water lilies throughout the shoreline of the lake in both the upper and lower end.

The DNR has permitted treatment of an area approximately 100ft x1,500ft (3.5 acre) located around the boat launch. Scheduled treatment will take place between the June 17th and the 19th – weather permitting. There are no restrictions following treatment.

NOTE:  Aquatic Control is not treating the lake for Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM) at this time. Milfoil is an invasive plant species that is approved for eradication by the DNR.  However, DNR officials have not approved treatment thus far this year.

If you have any questions/concerns please contact the BLCD at 574 772-2974 or email at INFO@BLCD-IND.ORG.
