To keep the chemical in the target areas, limit dilution, and deployment preparations Cane River Lake will close Monday May 7, and remain closed until sunrise Saturday May 12 for a submergence chemical treatment.
Once the chemical is administrated, (some properties on Tuesday May 8 with the main area on Wednesday May 9) it’s recommended that irrigation from the Lake cease until Wednesday May 16. The chemical used is a herbicide and could damage the vegetation being irrigated.
NOTE: The Cane River Waterway Commission or Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will not be responsible for any damage incurred due to irrigation that occurs in contravention of this notice.
