If you're planning on a lake day at Onota this coming Monday, you're going to have to change your plans.

Onota Lake will be chemically treated with aquatic herbicides on Monday, Aug. 10 to control invasive Eurasian watermilfoil and other nuisance aquatic vegetation.

The lake will be closed to all water uses, including swimming, fishing and boating, on the day of treatment.

These uses may resume on Tuesday morning, Aug. 11. Use of the lake water for irrigation (watering lawns, gardens or plants of any kind) is prohibited for five days post treatment.

Printed posters warning of these and other temporary water use restrictions will be posted around the lake shoreline in advance of the treatment.

For more information, call 499-9344.
