Deep Creek Lake Hydrilla Herbicide Treatment Scheduled for June 4, 2018

Last Updated on Jun 1, 2018 at 10:06am | Watershed Management
The first of four Deep Creek Lake hydrilla herbicide treatments is scheduled to take place Monday, June 4, 2018. Treatment is always subject to change due to weather conditions. 
 
During the treatment process, boaters are asked to stay clear of the treatment boat, while underway, so that the proper dosage of herbicide can be administered.  Additionally, dive teams will be on the lake periodically throughout the summer, with divers in the water monitoring the hydrilla emergence and response to the herbicide.  If you see red and white dive flags, please stay at least 100 feet away as divers are in the water.
 
An overview of 2018 plans is available here.
