Lake Wickaboag to get spot weed treatment.
WEST BROOKFIELD--The Lake Wickaboag Preservation Association, along with the West Brookfield Board of Health, has announced that a spot weed treatment is scheduled for Aug. 11. A microscopic algae treatment is also scheduled for that date.
Lycott Environmental, the contractor hired by the Board of Health to conduct the algaecide treatment for algae and spot lily treatment for selected areas, has requested that swimming, fishing and boating in the lake be suspended for the entire day and evening of the Aug. 11 treatment. There will be no water-use restrictions on the following: direct drinking, livestock watering and irrigation.
Members of LWPA will notify boaters and swimmers by placing signs on streets leading to the lake and by placing red flag buoys on the lake. As part of their education program, they will also send a reminder to residents through the local cable access channel before the application begins.
