LAA at Amesbury Con Com Meeting on Jan. 7th

Lake Attitash needs your help.  Please attend the Amesbury Conservation Commission meeting on Monday, January 7th at 7 PM at the Amesbury City Hall, 62 Friend Street in Amesbury to support the Lake Attitash Association’s request to extend its permit to treat for invasive weeds in 2019. (Good news – we are early on the agenda!) Without the Commission’s permit approval there will be no weed treatment and we will potentially be back to the days of clogged boat props, swimming entanglements, fishing snags and more.  Your support lets the Commission know how important this permit is to the people who enjoy using Lake Attitash.  See you there!Note: many of you attended the December Conservation Commission meeting when this permit was first requested. You will recall that the decision was “continued” to January 7. LAA was asked to provide an opinion from our lake management company regarding the interaction of Diquat (the herbicide we typically use for invasive milfoil) and alum (the grant funded treatment scheduled for next Spring to address the cyanobacteria blooms). We will be providing this additional information on January 7.
