All Day Event
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 20th and it is hoped that all Village lakes and ponds will be sprayed by Friday, May 24th; 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 27th.  
For this spraying cycle, irrigation restrictions are from May 20th to May 29th for the following lakes and ponds: Thagard Lake, Spring Valley Lake, Pine Lake, Shadow Lake, Whisper Lake, Blue Lake, Flyrod Lake,  Cardinal Lake, Cardinal Ponds (middle & lower), Whispering Winds and Hummingbird Ponds.  Please note that although Blue Lake and Flyrod Lake were sprayed in April, both lakes will be sprayed again during this spraying cycle.                                          . 
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 20th through Wednesday, May 29th for all lakes and ponds.  The list of lakes sprayed will be updated daily during the week of May 20th on the Village Facebook Page and the Village website Residents page.  You can also call Village Hall at 910-949-3141 x 11 for an updated list every day or with any questions.              
       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 will be posted on the Facebook page and Village website.
