Kelly Lake’s Mary Marks (Kelly Lake AIS Coordinator) has enlisted my help to try to get this information regarding AIS (Aquatic Invasive Species—namely “watermilfoil”) out ASAP for your review! The reason being, Schmidt’s Aquatic LLC hopes to start treating the watermilfoil as soon as Tuesday, or by the end of next week. They’re from Weyauwega, WI.
Initial treatments, starting three years ago, were very effectivel, but staying on top of this will be an ongoing process—we are winning; the growth patterns are markedly less..
The info has a cover letter and several pages of forms (Mary fills out), and takes more megs allowable to post. Therefore, I’m posting the cover letter. IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS OR OBJECTIONS TO THIS WATERMILFOIL ONGOING TREATMENT, please contact Mary at 920.842.2345.
You can also contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org. She actually would prefer that, then she can send the full PDF attachment, including map of planned treatment. Again you DO NOT have to fill out any forms!

TREATMENT OF EURASIAN WATERMILFOIL
IN KELLY LAKE
An application (attached) has been filed with the Wisconsin Department
of Natural Resources for a permit to apply the aquatic herbicide Tribune Diquat to approximately 1.5 acres on Kelly Lake. The treatment will occur sometime in May of this year 2016. Warning signs will be posted at the landings prior to treatment.
Once the specific date(s) have been selected by the consultant and
treatment specialist in conjunction with the DNR to assure the optimum
time of treatment, the/those date(s) will be posted on this website.
If you should have any questions, please contact the Wisconsin
Department of Natural Resources at 2984 Shawano Ave., Green
Bay, WI 54313, Attn: Brenda Nordin.

Mary appreciates the support (including financial) and, if I may say so, is sometimes overwhelmed with the amount of hoops and bars she has to go through and over to satisfy the prerequisites and requirements—including grants—for the treatment. Lets not forget the efforts Kelly Lake’s Becky Fabry (liaison to the Kelly Lake Sportsman’s Club) has contributed in concert with Mary. They’re our ambassadors for maintaining the quality of Kelly Lake.
I would be remiss if I left out Kelly Lake’s and Kelly Lake Advancement Association President, Ken Darby. And, I can’t leave out our Lake’s volunteer divers—among them is Tom Randerson—for their tedious work of “hand-pulling” the watermilfoil by the roots!!! There’s a long list of active participants that could be mentioned… but these are the core We all can be participants by contributing financially to ease that soliciting effort.
“Thanks”, to everyone for putting concerns into action. Roger
