TLAC awards contract for aquatic weeds removal
About 150 acres containing invasive species are expected to be treated this year.
The Tri-County Lake Administrative Commission at its May 1 meeting renewed its contract with a North Carolina-based company for aquatic vegetation treatment.
Skip's Aquatic Solution, which has handled the treatment for several years, will again target hydrilla and curlyleaf pondweed, according to Pam Dinkle, TLAC's lake management and project coordinator.
Dinkle said more than 150 acres were treated in 2011 and she expects about the same number to be treated again. TLAC will notify lake residents by postcard if there will be any water restrictions during treatment. Residents can access the website, sml.us.com., for more information about when and where the treatments will occur.
In other action, Randy Stow, president of the SML Water Safety Council, was appointed to the Navigation Committee, and banker Frank Chrzanowski was named the new representative from the SML Regional Chamber of Commerce.
