Druce and Third Lake Weed Treatment

Clarke Aquatics is planning to apply the herbicide applications on Druce and Third Lakes tomorrow, Wednesday, June 10th (weather permitting). Clarke will treat for invasive species (Curly leaf pondweed, Eurasian watermilfoil and algae bloom) in the problem areas that were discovered during our annual inspection.   

Residents may leave boats and piers in the water. We do ask for smaller items to be removed including kayaks, paddleboats, floats, etc to allow easier access to the shoreline areas. 

After the treatments are completed the lakes can be used for all regular recreational activities including swimming, boating, fishing and fish consumption immediately following the treatment.

There will be a 5 day irrigation restriction immediately following the treatment.  Residents that utilize an irrigation pump to draw water out of the lake will need to keep the pump off until Tuesday, June 16th

Covid-19 Testing Site is Moving

The new site, located at 102 W. Water St., Waukegan, will be open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., or until 750 test kits are completed for the day. The Illinois National Guard administers the tests, and results are provided by phone in 4-7 days. Testing is free and available regardless of immigration status. A phone number and name are required in order to receive testing results.

Red Flag Warning

Due to last nights rain, the water levels in the lakes are high. There is currently a “NO WAKE ZONE” for Third Lake. This is indicated by a red flag at the Village Boat launch, the dam and the Mariner’s Cove boat launch. We are monitoring lake levels and will remove the flag as soon as the water level drops.
