Event Date:

Event Time:
All Day Event

WHISPERING PINES LAKE RESIDENT                                                .
The Village has set the following tentative schedule for the 2020 spraying of Village lakes in an effort to control aquatic weeds.  Spraying will start on Monday, May 18th, weather permitting, and it is hoped that all Village lakes and ponds will be sprayed by Friday, May 22nd.  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 25th.  

For this spraying cycle, irrigation restrictions are from May 18th to May 27th 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.                                                                     

The list of lakes sprayed will be updated daily on our Facebook Page and the Village website (http://whisperingpinesnc.net on Resident 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. Future spraying dates, once determined, will be posted on the Village website.
