The Inland Lakes Protection & Rehabilitation District and Townsend Flowage Protection District proposes to chemically treat areas of McCaslin Brook, Explosion Lake, and Horn Lake for control of the invasive species Eurasian water-milfoil. Wisconsin Lake & Pond Resource will perform the treatment in May/June, 2021. The liquid herbicide ProcellaCOR EC (florpyrauxifen-benzyl active ingredient) will be used to control Eurasian water-milfoil. Warning signs will be posted within 150’ of the affected areas at the time of treatment which will include any restrictions relating water use as follows;
The Districts will hold a public informational meeting on the proposed treatments if five or more individuals, organizations, special units of government, or local units of government request one in writing. The person or entity requesting the meeting shall state a specific agenda of topics including problems and alternatives to be discussed. The request for the public informational meeting must be sent in writing to the Wisconsin Lake & Pond Resource, N7828 Town Hall Rd., Eldorado WI 54932 and to Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, 2984 Shawano Ave., Green Bay WI 54313 within five days of this publication.
