The Southwest Florida Water Management District will treat water hyacinths and water lettuce on portions of Lake Lindsey with the herbicide Reward from Monday through Thursday.
Operations may be canceled due to environmental conditions, staffing and equipment availability.
The following water-use restrictions apply within the treated areas: no livestock watering for one day, no irrigation of crops for five days, water shall not be used for drinking for two days. This does not apply to tap water. Treatment areas will be posted with warning signs displaying treatment dates and applicable restrictions.
