Clarke is treating Third Lake!

Clarke will be applying the herbicide application on Third Lake on Monday, July 12th, weather permitting.  The treatment will target Eurasian water milfoil which is an invasive species. There is no treatment for Druce Lake as this time. The water levels in Druce Lake are too low and Clarke is unable to launch the boat needed to complete the recheck.

There are no restrictions for swimming, however, there will be a 5 day irrigation restriction immediately following the application.  Any residents utilizing an irrigation pump to draw water from the lake to water lawns, trees, landscaping, food gardens or flowers will need to discontinue using the system for 5 days; until Saturday, July 17th.

Druce Lake Beach Closed

The Village just received word from the Lake County Health Department that the water sample taken from Druce Lake beach is unsafe for swimming. The LCHD tests the beach every other week for E Coli bacteria. They will be out today (6/29) to retest. Please continue to check the Village website for updates. Additionally, since rain events tend to lead to elevated bacteria levels in the water column, the LCHD advises that persons avoid swimming after a large rain event.
