  • June 24: Cornell Lake Treatment for Eurasian Milfoil Control

    The treatment of Cornell Lake for Eurasian Milfoil control is scheduled for Wednesday, June 24th, 2020 (weather permitting).

    The Village of Chenequa has contracted Marine Biochemists to chemically treat Cornell Lake with herbicides containing the active ingredient 2,4-D for control of the exotic and invasive aquatic plant Eurasian Milfoil. This non-native plant can interfere with navigational and recreational activities as well as harm native lake weeds.

    We have allowed Thursday June 25th as a rain date. If conditions still do not allow treatment, you will be notified.

    The chemicals will not be applied if conditions are raining or windy.

    The recommended precautions after treatment are as follows:

    NO swimming for one day.

    NO garden watering for 21 days.

    If you have any questions call the Village Hall at 367-2239.
