Cocolalla Lake Treatment Scheduled for Tuesday this coming week

A portion of Cocolalla Lake will be treated with Diquat for Eurasian Milfoil Control this coming Tuesday.  There is a 24 hour precaution for swimming within the treatment area, a three day restriction from drawing water for potable use or irrigation.  This treatment will not impact the majority of landowners on the lake, it is primarily focused on the southern portion.  Signs will be posted the day prior to treatment on the docks or your shoreline if you are in the treatment area.  You can also look at this map Treatment Map Link to view the location in relationship to your property.  You can also call 360-201-2612 to ask questions of our team.  The Idaho State Department of Agriculture staff contact is Nic Zurfluh at 208-631-9574.

Hayden Lake Update

We will be treating approximately 2 acres at Gem Cove/Hayden Haven this coming Monday July 31st to assist with the sampling schedule for the Water District there.  The balance of the treatment zones on the map will be posted on Tuesday August 1 and treated Wednesday August 2nd weather permitting.  Gem Cove/Hayden Haven map is shown here. gem cover

Cocolalla Lake Public Notices to be Delivered this week

Aquatechnex biologists will be delivering the required public notices two weeks prior to the planned aquatic herbicide treatment for Eurasian Milfoil is performed.  The proposed treatment map is available at the link below.  The blue areas are suggested for treatment, the green buffer area shows where the shoreline notices need to be delivered.

Aquatechnex and ISDA Scientists will be reviewing these treatment zones the week of July 31st and scheduled treatment is the week of August 7th.  This site will be updated that week to explain exact dates and procedures.

Hayden Lake Notices Delivered this week

In anticipation of the coming treatment of Hayden Lake the week of July 31st, Aquatechnex biologists posted notices on each property within the treatment zone at the lake and along the shoreline for an additional quarter mile in each direction.  We will also be posting signs the day prior to treatment and that is anticipated to be the middle of the week of the 31st.

We will be posting the exact date early that week when we know weather conditions.  A treatment map link is posted in the article just below if your interested in viewing the areas that will be affected.
