District treats lakes for invasive curleyleaf pondweed

Please note that the District will be treating Red Rock Lake, Mitchell Lake and Lake Riley this year for curleyleaf pondweed.  The District will begin delineating the curleyleaf pondweed next week (April 20) and will most likely treat the lakes shortly after.  We will post treatments day as soon as those are identified.  Thus, please check our website for the updates.

Curleyleaf pondweed is an invasive plant that is known to deteriorate lake water quality.  For more information on curleyleaf pondweed, please check the DNR website (http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/invasives/aquaticplants/curlyleaf_pondweed.html).

The District does not recommend using lakes water for 7 days to drink for both human and animal consumption, and irrigation purposes.
