South Twin Treated with Fluridone on 06/09th/2019 …

Schmidt’s Aquatic completed the initial treatment of Fluridone on S Twin today, 06/09th/2019. Water monitoring will begin in 2 weeks. We will continue to do periodic temperature samples of the water as during summer the water stratification pushes deeper and thus future bump treatments will need to be computed over a larger water volume.

First bump treatment on S Twin on Monday, July 22, 2019 …

We will be performing the first bump treatment on S Twin on Monday, July 22, 2019. The posted sign guidelines still apply and you can find DNR fact sheet on Fluridone in a link on our website.

The EWM treatment is a very slow process and as such you will have active EWM growing yet this summer. We ask that you refrain from active boating this summer on S Twin in the areas of significant EWM typically between 4′ – 14′ please. This will reduce the fragmentation of EWM and its ability to float and seed elsewhere. Whenever possible we ask that you boat in the > 14′ as this will be a factor in the success in our $140,000 treatment on S Twin this summer.
