The herbicide to be used is Renovate OTF. It has been successfully used in other lakes, has no adverse environmental impact and is approved by the state Department of Environmental Conservation, Belkevich said.
Tiedemann said there are 90 residents living on Eagle Lake and all have verbally agreed to the use of the herbicide.
About 15 of those people use water from the lake for household needs, he said, but the herbicide will not impact them.
The Eagle Lake Property Owners, Inc. (ELPOI) was established in 1907 and incorporated in 1993 as a not-for-profit organization that serves to protect the interests of its property owners and to maintain the environmental and recreational quality of Eagle Lake.
