We hope everyone in your household is safe and sound during this pandemic.
Our lake association board has continued to work on the planned summer treatment program during the NYS on Pause and this post is intended to give you an update and ask for your donation.
We are planning to treat new areas for variable leaf milfoil and begin treatment for Starry Stonewort, the green mat-like plant that covers large stretches of the lake. For details click here.
In mid-March we submitted our permit applications to DEC and mailed notification letters to all riparian owners in the affected area. If you are a property owner at the lake or downstream to Cortland you should have received the notification letter which explains the treatment and the potential water use impacts.
It is important to continue this work even during the pandemic. The “weeds” are still growing and there will be life after we figure out this virus.
Please send your donation by check to LYLPS, P.O. Box 56, Little York NY 13087 or donate online at littleyorklake.com/beattheweeds no later than May 10th.
