Curly-leaf Pondweed Treatment
The Shingle Creek Watershed Management Commission plans to treat curly-leaf pondweed in Bass Lake in May 2022.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has granted to the Commission a waiver of the requirement to obtain the signatures of approval of owners of lake-shore property. Instead, the Commission is notifying property owners of the treatment by posting public notice. The treatment is for curly-leaf pondweed which is a non-native plant that grows in the spring and early summer.
1) Proposed date of treatment: May 12th-May 28th.
2) Target Species: curly-leaf pondweed (Potamogeton crispus
3) Method of control: chemical application of diquat by MNDNR certified applicator
4) Landowners may request that control not occur within 150 feet of shore adjacent to their property. If you do not want treatment of curly-leaf pondweed within 150 feet of your shoreline, please notify the Commission immediately by email:
