As you may be aware, MSLID (Mink-Somers Lake Improvement District) has begun work with Limnopro Aquatic Services developing a Lake Management Plan for Mink and Somers lakes. The annual lake spraying will TENTATIVELY be done the week of April 19, 2021, by Limnopro. It will depend on the temperature of the lake water and weather. The lake temperature needs to be 50 degrees for 2-3 days before it can be treated. The areas that will be sprayed are based on the AIS (Aquatic Invasive Species) plant survey that was done by Limnopro. The DNR allows 15 acres per lake to be sprayed. In addition, MSLID IS NOT ALLOWED to spray within 150 feet of individual property shorelines.
Many property owners on Somers and Mink lakes choose to have their individual property shorelines sprayed by private companies. The cost of this spraying is the responsibility of each property owner. There are two companies that we are aware of that homeowners have hired to spray their shorelines: Clarke Aquatic, 630-894-2000 and Aqua Care, 952-403-6879. If there are other companies property owners are using, please let us know. We would like to share that information as well.
