Cattail treatment scheduled for South Lake
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will treat cattails in South Lake in northern Brevard County during the week of June 22, weather permitting. The FWC’s Invasive Plant Management Section will treat 300 acres of cattails by helicopter; please see shaded green areas on attached map.
The aerial application of Clearcast™ is approved for use in lakes by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. There are no restrictions for fishing, swimming or irrigation in the treated areas.
Managing and treating cattails is necessary for the health of Florida’s waters and to enable continued recreational boating and other aquatic activities while producing better habitat.
For questions about this treatment, please contact C.J. Greene, FWC invasive plant management biologist, at 863-534-7074.
