Invasive Plant Treatment (July 2nd)

June 29, 2018

We have been notified by Solitude Lake Management that they have received a permit to apply “Reward” (which contains 37.3% diquat) to two areas of Lake Lillinonah on Monday, July 2, at 11AM. The two areas can be described as the Barkwood Falls cove, from the inlet throughout, and the stretch of homes from the end of Lillinonah Drive in Brookfield to the Newtown Boat Launch at the end of Hanover Road in Newtown. We wanted to bring this to your attention directly in case you don’t see the public notices that are published and posted locally. The following restrictions apply to an area within 500 feet of the area described above: no swimming (from 7/2 at 11AM) until 7/3/18, don’t use the water for irrigation until 7/8/18, don’t water your livestock until 7/4/18, and don’t drink the water until 7/6/18. All areas beyond 500’ of the described areas are unaffected by this application.
