Herbicides to be used for invasive milfoil treatment

The LSLID Board of Directors would like to inform property owners on Lake Shamineau that we have applied for a permit which will allow us to treat within 150 feet from shore for Eurasian water Milfoil, an invasive species.  One treatment is planned from June-August 2018. The method for control will be triclopyr or similar product as approved by the EPA and MDA as aquatic herbicides. This treatment will primarily occur in the southwest bay. We will do this in conjunction with mechanical hand pulling which will be primarily used in the northwest bay.

Shoreline property owners may request that herbicide control not occur adjacent to the landowners’ property within 150 of the shoreline. If you desire treatment not occur adjacent to your property, please provide your name, property address and notify the LSLID at the following address:
