The herbicide treatment on Little York Lake was completed today at approximately 12 noon. Swimming is prohibited until 12 noon on Friday, May 31.
Lake and downstream riparian owners should not use the water for irrigation or drinking until we have conducted tests and verified that the concentration levels are <100 ppb and <50 ppb respectively. We will conduct our first downstream tests in 10 days and publish the results as soon as possible.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, contact us via email at [email protected] or via phone at 607-218-2550.
