At the conference they will be discussing threats to Michigan lakes and streams. Here is an article:
PLM has notified the LOWIA that they will be starting lake treatments earlier this year than in the past, they will start with Sonar treatments. Check your USPS mail and this website for the current treatment schedule, it will be posted as soon as we receive it. The last time PLM did a sonar treatment on our lake was 11 years ago, our lake has done very well the past years with our current PLM treatment program. Although, last year more Milfoil weeds were noticed as the season went on. Sonar is a slow acting treatment of the entire lake to keep Milfoil in check. Then as the season continues, PLM will be spot treating for any more Milfoil and also for Starry Stonewort. The Starry Stonewort should not be appearing in our lake until June or July, and when spotted it will be treated.
The USPS post office in town has informed me about mail being delivered to your lake address and I thought I would pass it on to the members. If you do not receive a first class letter once a month to your lake mailbox, the post office regards this as an inactive mailbox. Lots of us have switched to automatic payments and are also having our bills sent to our email address. They suggest that if you want your mailbox to stay active, you should either mail yourself a letter once a month, or make changes so the you will receive some kind of mailing once a month. Some people have told me that all of a sudden they stopped receiving mail so I hope this clarifies any issues anyone has had with missing mail.
