District to Test Chemicals vs. Mechanical Harvesting
The Lake Iola Lake District (LILD) will chemically treat four areas of Lake Iola.

The treatment is planned for this summer, in addition to mechanical harvesting of the weeds.

“Only 20 and 30 foot wide navigation lanes will be sprayed this year so as not to open up too much potential for invasive plants such as Eurasian Water Milfoil and Curly Leaf Pondweed to take over,” Bertelson said. “We will not harvest in these areas, which gives us more time to harvest and pick up debris on the rest of the lake.”

Cliff Schmidt, of Schmidt’s Aquatic Plant Control, will do 160 hours of weed harvesting.

Weed harvesting will begin two weeks prior to July 4 and then again at the end of August.

DNR’s Impaired Lake List - The federal Clean Water Act (CWA) requires that states adopt water quality standards to protect waters from pollution. These standards set the water quality goals for a lake, river, or stream by stating the maximum amount of a pollutant that can be found in the water while still allowing it to be used for fishing, swimming, and allowing aquatic organisms and wildlife to thrive
