Notification of Aquatic Treatment at Webster Lake

Areas of Webster Lake will be chemically treated with USEPA/MA registered aquatic herbicides on Wednesday, June 16th to control nuisance and invasive aquatic vegetation. The entire lake will be closed for swimming and other water contact recreation on the day of treatment only (June 16th).   In addition, the lake water cannot be used for drinking, irrigation (i.e.; watering lawns, gardens or plants of any kind) and consumption by livestock (refers to cattle, horses, etc., - note that pets/wildlife that may ingest the lake water while swimming will not be harmed) for a period of five days, commencing on the day of treatment, or until June 22nd.  The State & Town Boat ramps will be closed to launching of boats on the day of treatment and the Town Beach will also be closed.  A map of the lake showing the treated/restricted areas will be posted at both the town and state boat launches and is also available on the Webster Lake Association’s web-site (https://websterlakeassociation.org/weed-management).   Printed signs, warning of these and any other water use restrictions will be posted around the lake shoreline in advance of treatment.  The work is being performed under a License to Apply Chemicals permit issued from MA DEP and an Order of Conditions from the Webster Conservation Commission.  SOLitude Lake Management of Shrewsbury, MA will be performing this work for the Webster Lake Association.
