Waneta, Lamoka Lakes ready for herbicide

WANETA, LAMOKA LAKES—The Department of Environmental Conservation has received the application for further treatments of Waneta and Lamoka Lakes.
These treatments are part of a two year program that started last year. The herbicide Renovate was used and while it reduced the invasive milfoil plant, a study by Cornell University said it did not harm the fish. Dennis Fagan, Schuyler County legislator, said the DEC has until April 6 to make its decision on whether to give the permits. He said once they get the permits, it is hoped the treatments will be able to start soon afterwards.
The next rounds of treatments have already been mapped out, and are available from the Tyrone and Wayne town governments. On Waneta Lake, the areas include a strip of lake at the very northern end. Renovate will also be used for a short ways south on both sides of the lake, starting where the previous northernmost treatments ended. On the west side of Waneta Lake, treatments will take place from almost the the southern end and most of the way north. On the eastern side, treatments will start at around the halfway point going south and stop where Renovate was used last year. Dawn Dowdle, Wayne town supervisor, said 100 total acres in Waneta Lake would be treated.
In Lamoka Lake, the treatments will be concentrated at the southern most end and in all of Mill Pond and Mud Creek. A few other areas around the lake will also be treated. Dowdle said 322 acres of Waneta Lake would be treated.
She also said letters had gone out and would go out to notify residents along the lake when treatments would start.
