Re:       Proposed Lake Management Program – Truesdale Lake

Truesdale Lake POA and Truesdale Estates Association are planning to continue the Lake Management Program for Truesdale Lake in 2014.  The Program is intended to control pondweeds (Potamogeton crispus and P. foliosus) and algae, thus improving water quality conditions as well as the recreational and aesthetic value of the lake. The Program is being carried out by NYSDEC certified personnel from the lake management firm, ALLIED BIOLOGICAL INC., registered with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (No. 01301). NYSDEC permit applications will be submitted requesting approval for the application of the herbicides Sonar AS (fluridone) (Labels: Aquathol-K supplemental label (438)Sonar AS label (381)), Aquathol-K (endothall) (Labels: Aquathol-K Label (446)Aquathol-K Special Local Need label (426)Aquathol-K supplemental label (438)and the algaecide copper sulfate (Label: copper sulfate label (797)).

Treatments are anticipated to occur between April 1 and September 30, 2014 and will proceed only after the issuance of NYSDEC permits.  Aquatic pesticide applications will only occur if sufficient aquatic vegetation is present to warrant treatment and favorable weather conditions exist.  Prior notification of the exact dates of treatment will be provided to the Association and NYSDEC 7 days prior to treatment and by shoreline posting on the day of application. Water use restrictions are as follows:
