After a quick survey of Third lake, it appears that there could be blue green algae on a large portion of the lake. The water has not been tested yet by the Lake County Health Department, but the Village advices using caution if participating in water activities.
Clarke will be performing the second Village wide adult mosquito control application this evening, July 21, 2022, into Friday morning, weather conditions permitting based on collections of West Nile Virus positive mosquito collections. This application will be done in conjunction with the Village of Gurnee and Warren Township.
Please do your part to help eliminate mosquitos.
- Remove hiding spaces for mosquitos (tall grass, weeds, compost piles, overgrown vegetation, lawn furniture)
- Clear standing water. Check in flower pots, wheelbarrows, tires, bird baths (change water frequently), buckets, grill covers, tarps, trash can lids, and gutters.
- Add mosquito repelling plants to your landscape (citronella, bee balm, lavender, catnip, marigolds, peppermint)
The work on the retention ponds in Mariner’s Cove will begin before August 1st. The Village is finishing some final paperwork so the exact start date is not known at this time. Aldridge should start mobilizing equipment within the next week and the project should take approximately one month to complete. If you have any questions, please contact the Village Hall.
