The Lake Geneva Area Association has engaged Limnopro Aquatic Science out of St. Cloud to help manage this problem. They are licensed and certified in Minnesota to apply herbicides to treat aquatic invasive species of this nature.

They will be applying diquat in the identified areas from a plant survey that they conducted. The treatment will occur on or before May 31.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
