2010-2012 Newman Lake Milfoil Eradication Final Report
Final IAVMP Addendum 2013
Spring 2015 Milfoil Treatment Follow-up
The 22 acre herbicide treatment to control Eurasian milfoil was completed along the upper northern shoreline of Newman Lake last Tuesday afternoon (6-2-2015). The public launch, as well as the two private launches were closed from Tuesday through Thursday, in order to discourage boaters and swimmers from being in the water and possibly dispersing the herbicide away from the targeted areas. This herbicide treatment was not performed within areas of lake water intakes, so there were no requests to provide drinking water.
We want to thank Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife, as well as Newman Lake Resort, Sutton Bay Resort, and the Newman Lake Community for their cooperative efforts in helping to ensure the herbicide treatments are a success.
