Herbicide Treatment on Lake Holiday

Herbicide Treatment on Lake Holiday

Curly-lead Pondweed
Curly-leaf Pondweed

An herbicide treatment with Galleon in Lake Holiday is scheduled for April 16th. The herbicide treatment will target curly-leaf pondweed an invasive aquatic plant that makes it difficult for native plants to survive and can affect water quality. Galleon is a selective herbicide which means it targets a specific species of aquatic plant. Galleon was chosen for this herbicide treatment to minimize impacts on the native plants growing in Lake Holiday.

A licensed contractor has been hired to complete the herbicide treatment, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has reviewed the treatment plan and issued a permit for the herbicide treatment.

Galleon has no aquatic use restrictions, and its application should not interfere with boating, swimming, fishing, or fish consumption. There are no legislative drinking water restrictions for humans, livestock, pets, or other animals.
