Permit(s) Applied for: Navigation Law - Sections 35, 35A, 35B, 43 & 45 Floating Objects
Article 15 Title 3 Aquatic Pesticides
Project is Located: Bolton, Warren County
Project Description:

The action involves the treatment of approximately 36 acres of Lake George (total lake

surface approximately 28,000 acres) at four specific locations with Sonar (fluridone), an aquatic herbicide, for Eurasian Watermilfoil control. As part of the Eurasian Watermilfoil control demonstration project, the applicant is proposing the construction of temporary isolation curtains. The isolation curtains will limit the exchange of water between the areas treated with Sonar and the remaining waters of Lake George. This will allow isolated treatments of the test areas and create the most effective conditions for the critical period of herbicide-plant interaction. The specific locations of the treatment areas and isolations curtains are as follows: Paradise Bay southeast of Hazel Island, Moonlight Bay located in the south central portion of Harbor Island, West Tongue Mountain Bay located on the east side of Northwest Bay, Sawmill Bay located east of Green Island. The proposed duration of the isolation curtain installation is approximately 6 weeks.
