SOLitude Lake Management conducted a survey of the lake yesterday, 5/19/2020, and reported that Fanwort is starting to show signs the Fluridone is taking effect. SOLitude will be back on the lake next Tuesday, May 26th to add the 1st booster treatment and the lake will be closed for recreational use. Signs have been posted throughout the community. Due to the herbicide application, lake water should not be utilized for irrigation purposes until July 29, 2020 (90 days from initial treatment).
SOLitude Lake Management will be treating the lake with Fluridone (Sonar) on April 28, 2020 to remediate our Fanwort problem.
There are restrictions during the treatment period to ensure there is no interference from people or boaters during the chemical application. The restrictions are not due to any toxicity concerns. Below are the restrictions for Tuesday, April 28:
- No swimming, boating or other recreational uses of the lake will be allowed during the day of the initial treatment (April 28) or on days when booster treatments are applied. (Dates of booster treatments will be determined at a later date and you will be notified via email before those dates.)
- If you planned to put your boat in the water on April 28, please change your input to another day. The Boat Ramp will be closed to residents on Tuesday, April 28.
- Please do not take any boat out on the lake on Tuesday, April 28.
- Please do not water your flowers, lawn or garden with lake water on the day of chemical treatment, or for 90 days following the treatment.
A special Shareholders Meeting will be held on Saturday, February 29th 2020. This event will take place at the Lunenburg High School Auditorium at 1pm.
Please make every effort to attend this important meeting to hear about the current issues on the lake and efforts being made to address them.
