Comments2020- All 5 ponds were treated with ProcellaCOR herbicide. Post treatment monitoring suggests good progress toward eradication. 2021- 2 of the 3 ponds on Burgiyne road had minimal regrowth and were chemically treated in June. Small amounts of regrowth were removed by hand following treatments. Monitoring in fall 2021 showed regrowth in all 3 ponds Burgoyne Rd ponds with follow up treatment planned for 2022. The 2 ponds off Lemon Rd were drained and filled for livestock use, therefore no longer a threat for additional spread.
