ProcellaCOR is a new aquatic herbicide that is extremely effective on milfoil and hybrid forms of milfoil present in Loon Lake. As part of a DOE grant, our team tested it against plants from the lake in a concentration exposure time study conducted last year. ProcellaCOR was added to the Ecology permit effective July 5th.
ProcellaCOR treated areas can be used for swimming and fishing with no restriction just after application. ProcellaCOR can be used in potable water reservoirs with no restriction on delivery for potable use so there are no drinking water restrictions if anyone draws from the treatment area for this purpose. There is no restriction on irrigating turf grass from the treatment area, there is a 24 hour restriction on using water from the treatment area to irrigate other ornamental plants.
