WHISPERING PINES LAKE RESIDENT:
The Village has set the following tentative schedule for the spraying of Village lakes in an effort to control aquatic weeds. Spraying will start on Monday, May 15th and it is hoped that all Village lakes and ponds will be sprayed by Friday, May 19th; weather permitting. Spraying cannot be done during windy and/or rainy conditions, and if this occurs, it could push the spraying schedule into the week of Monday, May 22nd.
For this spraying cycle, irrigation restrictions are from May 15th to May 24th for the following lakes and ponds: Thagard Lake, Spring Valley Lake, Pine Lake, Shadow Lake, Whisper Lake, Blue Lake, Fly Rod Lake, Cardinal Lake, Cardinal Ponds (middle & lower), Whispering Winds and Hummingbird Ponds. It is important to remember that ALL IRRIGATION DRAWN FROM A SPRAYED LAKE OR POND MUST STOP FOR A FIVE DAY PERIOD FOLLOWING THE SPRAYING. While the chemicals used are safe for swimming, fishing, boating or other activities, irrigation with sprayed lake water is very harmful or fatal to lawns and shrubs and vegetable gardens.
At this time, plan on turning off your irrigation system from Monday, May 15th through Wednesday, May 24th for all lakes and ponds. The lakes will be treated during this time period and irrigation systems must not be used for five days after treatment. If you are concerned about the exact day of treatment and when you can begin irrigating from your lake or pond, please visit the Village website or Charter Channel 190 during the week of May 15th for the day of treatment. The list of lakes sprayed will be updated daily on Charter Channel 190 and the Village website (http://www.whisperingpinesnc.net/special_notices.htm). You can also call Village Hall at 910-949-3141 x 11 for an updated list every day.
NCSU recommended that weed control chemicals be applied every four to six weeks for maximum effectiveness. A second spraying will be in June and a third in August. As soon as future spraying dates are determined, they can be found on the Village website, Charter Cable Channel 190 or by calling Village Hall, 949-3141 x 11.
