    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.

    (WAUKESHA, WI) – The Waukesha County Communications (WCC) Center is working with Public Health officials and the 9-1-1 Medical Director to implement additional screening tools during call-taking procedures to obtain specific information concerning the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. These efforts are in place to mitigate first responder exposure and provide efficient emergency services to Waukesha County residents.

    WCC currently utilizes the International Academy of Emergency Dispatch (IAED) Emergency Medical Dispatch protocol for all medical call-taking. Now, WCC will also implement the Emerging Infectious Disease Surveillance (EIDS) tool on every call for service so call-takers can ask two additional questions to identify potential COVID-19 symptoms, as well as whether the patient has had direct close contact with someone diagnosed, as identified by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

    Additional measures have been taken in an effort to protect staff, as essential employees, during the COVID-19 outbreak. The WCC is closed to outside visitors until further notice. All group meetings, trainings, visits, tours, and sit-ins have been indefinitely suspended. We will continue to take all necessary precautions to protect our essential communications staff.

    If you have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 we strongly advise individuals and employees to stay home to limit the spread of the virus.

    • Call 911 for emergencies that pose immediate risks to health, life, property, or environment
    • Visit waukeshacounty.gov/COVID19 for local public health information on COVID-19
    • Call 211 for information for COVID-19 questions about non-serious symptoms
    • Call WCC Non-Emergency at 262-446-5070 with non-emergent requests for Police/Fire

    The Waukesha County Communications center remains responsive to implementing best practice during this pandemic and remains in constant contact with the County Executive’s Office and Department of Public Health as information continues to develop.
