Starting Friday , May 20 , Goguac Lake will receive several days of chemical weed treatments , coordinated by the city and the state Department of Environment , Great Lakes , and Energy . These are routine , annual treatments to keep our lake healthy .
The team applying the treatments will post signs in the treated areas of the lake , asking neighbors and visitors to stay off the water in those areas for 24 hours . This is so the treatments have time to reach the intended weed species in the water , and work effectively .
If a person does go into the lake while the treatment signs are posted , we recommend showering after leaving the lake . The treatments are tested , and determined to be safe for this use in the lake .
The links below will open lake maps showing the treatment areas with color and lines .
Friday , May 20
- Treatment in the channels along Lakeshore Drive , Lynwood Drive , Bayshore Drive , and Bay Pointe Street
Monday and Wednesday , May 23 and 25
- Treatment in shoreline areas around the north and south ends of the lake , near the following streets: Sherman Drive and Woodrow South , Lakeshore Drive , private road to Vince Island , Country Club Drive , George B Place/Jennings Landing/Willard Beach Park , Hiawatha Drive , Wa Wee Nork Drive , and Honey Lane/Sunnyside Drive
