Welcome Lake Residents

2018 Curly Leaf Spraying


It’s time once again to prepare ourselves with the overwhelming amount of curly leaf pondweed in our chain of lakes. Curly leaf pondweed is an exotic (non-native) plant that creates a nuisance for pleasure craft, fisherman and other lake activities. The Greater Jefferson-German Lake Association assisted by Lee Plonske and the Lake Coordinators are ready to assist those interested in controlling this pesty propeller clogging weed. The goal this year is to create a new/revised listing showing all shoreline owners that are interested. This revised list will help with assigning Lake Coordinators along with determining costs by each represented area(s). In order to accomplish our goal, we ask that you sign up now as spring is just around the corner. “Our commitment is to make sure we DO NOT miss anyone this year”. Unfortunately for us, The State of Minnesota ran out of grant money before making it south of the cities. Knowing this, the cost this year will now be determined by the number of acres allotted by the DNR and the number of shoreline owners that participate. One sure thing is, it definitely will be less expensive then doing it on your own. Let’s start NOW by signing up and making the commitment to control the curly leaf pondweed in our chain of lakes. By just emailing the address below we can get started. List the lake you are on, your name, lake address, phone number and any questions you may have pertaining to the program. That way we can keep you and your neighbors updated on this year’s progress. Once we have calculated the detailed information, we will contact you or your Lake Coordinators with the cost, spraying dates and any other pertinent information via this email. (Also check the GJGLA Website and Facebook). Send all correspondence to: GJGLASPRAYING@GMAIL.COM (GJGLA will not share your email addresses with outside entities). “Remember, Controlling Curly leaf pondweed is a concerted effort” Thank you for your support.
