Between the months of May and September, Aquatic Technologies, Inc. performs regular monitoring and treatment of the lake, every 10 days. A pre-season treatment is done in early May. The lake is treated with Sonar, which is a systemic herbicide. This is a slow release approach which kills the rooted nuisance vegetation that is specific to our lake. The second step of lake treatment is for Filamentous Algae growth. The algae is treated through a copper based algaecide. All of the services are conducted by licensed and trained aquatic biologists who use lake management techniques which improve the aesthetics, natural resources, water quality, and ecological balance of Shongum Lake.
