Water Treatment on June 23, 2014

Due to inadequate coverage of the Renovate OTF in the south bay of the lake during the initial treatment on June 4, 2014, PLM returned on June 23, 2014 and treated with liquid Diquat Dibromide, chemical trade name Tribune, in order to knock out the remaining Milfoil on Cedar Lake. The original treatment of Renovate OTF was not applied close enough to the shoreline, the fear being that the granules would get on peoples piers, docks, & boats.The following restrictions apply for Tribune in the treated area:

Chemical product/active ingredient Chemical trade name Do Not Use this water for swimming or bathing until Do Not Use this water for ornamentals or turf irrigation until Do Not Use this water for domestic purposes or agriculture irrigation until Do Not Use this water for livestock watering or similar purposes until
