Diver Suction Harvesting Update
The DEQ has not issued our permit yet. So everything is on hold for now. They have had the permit request for over 40 days. When MTT Divers called to inquire about the permit they were told that they were 30 days behind and MTT Divers need to provide them a different map. They are working on providing that information.
We still have a lot of time left this season and our plan is to start as soon as the DEQ approves the permit.
The Lake Association will keep everyone informed as we get more information. Sorry for the late notice.
Lee Lake Association Voluntary Treatment Program Update
At the October 17th LLA meeting a motion was made to create a voluntary lake treatment program for treatment of Lee Lake during 2018. Treatment will designating 90% of funding towards Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting (DASH) for treating hybrid milfoil and 10% funding toward chemical treatment of hybrid phragmites. The voluntary program will collect funds from lake property owners at the following rates: $200 for lake front owner, $100 for lake access user and $50 for back-lot owner. A lake property owner pays only for one property at the single highest rate previous stated for the voluntary program. The members approved the motion in attendance.
