I see the usual misinformation so common these days. Let me add more confusion by adding actual facts.
Last year was the first time harvesting was used in the lake in 15yrs. They used it again this year along with herbicide treatment for invasive plants. They never proposed or did a treatment designed to kill all the plants in the lake. Sonar is done in late April or early may for when there's Milfoil present, BEFORE the good plants start to grow. Never at a strength that kills anything else and not every year. It actually enables the good plants to thrive instead of being pushed out by non-native plants.
The proper use of herbicides can help a lake to prosper. Mis-use, like anything else, can be harmful. Properly used, they go hand in hand with proper harvesting techniques. Mis-use of harvesting also can hurt a lake.
The lake bottom owners have a right to some level of enjoyment on their lake. There are over 200 boats on LZ, about 10% of those are fishing designed boats. Lake bottom owner fishermen should also have their rights on the water. There's no reason both can't get along with a reasonable amount of plants. The association stocks thousands - thousands - of fish every year in the lake, and that's not for the water skiers.
