Subject:    Lake Johanna Improvement Society Information Bulletin #11

Everyone should have received a letter in late May from Lake Restoration, the contractor engaged by the Board to treat aquatic plants this summer.  The letter indicated the amount of lakeshore footage on your property that has been approved for treatment under the permit granted this year by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).  The letter also included a sticker and flags that the crews will look for when treating your lakeshore.  Please put the sticker on the end of your dock or at another easily visible location.  The flags should mark the extent of the lakeshore, consistent with the DNR approved footage, that you want treated.

Lake Restoration completed its inspection of the lake on June 8.  Based on the inspection, and the weather, they are planning two treatment applications.  The first will take place late in the week of June 13, or early the following week.  The second treatment is tentatively scheduled 4-5 weeks after the first treatment (mid-July).  Both applications will treat submerged weeds.

Unlike some past years, it does not appear necessary at this time to schedule a separate, and more costly, treatment for filamentous algae because it is not widely evident in the lake.  However, they will continue to monitor the algae presence. 

Goose removal should be completed by mid-June.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for the annual picnic on Thursday evening, August 11, at Tony Schmidt Park.

Have a great summer on the lake!
