Dear Lake Pulaski and Little Pulaski Property Owners:

The Lake Pulaski Lake Improvement District (LID) has contracted to treat Eurasian Watermilfoil and Curlyleaf Pondweed in Lake Pulaski and Little Pulaski in 2014. This year’s application will be similar to the 2013 application, per the DNR guidelines that were updated in 2013. The application area will cap at a maximum of 15% of the littoral acreage which will again be approximately 17 acres on Lake Pulaski and 5 acres on Little Pulaski.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has granted to the Lake Pulaski LID a waiver of the requirement that the association obtain the signatures of approval of owners of lake-shore property. Instead, the Lake Pulaski LID will notify property owners of the treatment through an alternate form. This letter is one form that the Lake Pulaski LID is using to notify property owners. Other forms will include notification on the Lake Pulaski web page, www.lakepulaski.com and discussion of weed control at the annual meeting the third Tues. in August.

With regard to the treatment for this year, 2014:

  1. The proposed date for treatment:. TBD/ treatment will be scheduled after the lake is remapped by James Johnson of Freshwater Institute.
  2. The target species for the treatment: EWM & CLP
  3. The method of control or product being used: 30 foot long trailing hoses attached to the back of the application boat will place the herbicide within the area targeted for the plant species
  4. If you desire that the treatment of EWM or CLP not occur adjacent to your property, please notify Linda Engwall, Lake Pulaski LID Board Member, immediately at the following address, phone number or email:
