The plan was to knock out non-native milfoil plants to allow the native vegetation to grow, but the $125,000 Sonar treatment left the lake void of plant life and the water turned turbid.

The lake association was spending about $25,000 a year to treat weeds selectively and the applicator told them they could save money in the long run by using Sonar in one treatment. The weed kill was done legally, the Indiana DNR approved the permit on the presumption – offered by the chemical applicator and urging of lake residents – that it would be a selective weed kill and native plant life would thrive.
