Mason Lake Milfoil Review Begins

posted Jun 25, 2012, 12:40 PM by Mason Benson Center   [ updated Jun 25, 2012, 12:44 PM ]
On Thursday June 21, our contractor, AquaTechnex had began the annual surveying for the invasive weeds (Milfoil, Sagitaria) in Mason Lake.  This visual survey will be done from their boat around docks. They will then do a diving survey beginning June 28 and 29 and July 2 and 3, weather dependent.  A treatment schedule notice will be sent out in early July.   If you have guest boats coming here, make sure they inspect their boat and trailer for any signs of Milfoil that could have come from another lake before they launch.  Also, to help slow the growth of the invasive weeds, we need to make sure our septic systems are working properly and reduce the amount of fertilizers used on yards. 
There is more information about the milfoil issue in the News/Noxious Weeds section of the website.
