Aquatechnex biologists have begun the 2017 Phase One treatment for the Moses Lake Irrigation and Rehabilitation District. Areas of the lake to be treated are first posted with signage at the waterside. This notice indicated the day to be treated and the water use restrictions.
We are using two herbicides this year the water use restrictions within the treatment area are a 24 hour swimming precaution triggered by the Washington DOE permit, the US EPA requires no swimming restriction. There is a three day restriction on drawing water from the treatment areas for irrigation starting just as the product is applied.
Please check your waterfront for signs, and review the treatment map page on this web site to see if your property is subject to application.
Tomorrow the areas to be treated will be:
Laguna, Wild Goose, Cove West, Dunes, Parker Horn west shore as noted and the Dredge zone north of the bridge in Parker Horn.
If you have questions you can contact us through the log a case feature on this web site as well.
Please also check back for updates regularly.
