2nd Lake Spraying Schedule - Weather Permitting
Posted on Friday June 26, 2020
WHISPERING PINES LAKE RESIDENT:                                     .                                  
      The Village has set the following tentative schedule for the second spraying of Village lakes in an effort to control aquatic weeds.  Spraying will start on Monday, June 29th and it is hoped that all Village lakes and ponds will be sprayed by Friday, July 3rd; 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, July6.  
      For this spraying cycle, irrigation restrictions are from June 29th to July 8th   for the following lakes and ponds: 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.  Thagard Lake will not be sprayed at this time.  
      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, June 29th through Wednesday, July 8th for all lakes and ponds. The list of lakes sprayed will be updated daily during the week of June 29th 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.       
      The NCSU has recommended that weed control chemicals be applied every four to six weeks for maximum effectiveness, so a third spraying will be in August.  As soon as future spraying dates are determined, they will be posted on the Facebook page and Village website.
