Environmental officials plan weed control effort

The Department of Environmental Protection will conduct aquatic weed control operations from Monday to Jan. 21 in Lake Rousseau using Environmental Protection Agency-approved herbicides. Water hyacinth and water lettuce will be maintained using the herbicide Reward.

People using these areas of Lake Rousseau for domestic purposes or for irrigation are cautioned that treated water should not be used for a period of five days and no livestock watering for one day. Water shall not be used for drinking (does not apply to tap water) for two days.

Signs displaying treatment dates and restrictions will be posted in treated areas. Scheduled treatments may be canceled due to environmental conditions.

The management and treatment of nuisance exotic vegetation is necessary to maintain recreational activities and protection of native plant populations in Florida waters, officials say.
