  • Information Important to Every Holiday Lake Property Owner
    (03/31/2016)

    PLEASE: DO NOT USE CHEMICALS TO TREAT ALGAE

    Background
    Because of the water of Holiday Lake is clean and clear, the sunlight is able to reach the bottom. This enables plant life to grow causing the increased amount of algae seen close to the surface during the 2014-2015 summer seasons.

    After much research coordinated by Connie Sjerven regarding practices on treating Chara as well as other bottom growing algae observed in our Lake, it has been recommended to take a cautious approach by chemically treat the lake water with Cutrine Plus Granular. This chemical WILL NOT HARM FISH AND WATER PLANT LIFE NOR ENDANGER THE HEALTH OF SWIMMERS AND PETS.

    Supporting taking a cautious approach, the Board of Directors at the March Regular Board meeting voted in partnership with Rural Improvement Zone Trustees to approve the contract to apply the chemical Cutrine Plus Granular to the main body and coves of Holiday Lake as soon as the water temperature and conditions are right for application.

    Action
    Under contract, Iowa Pond Guy, LLC with the required equipment will apply Cutrine Plus Granular as soon as the water temperature is 60 degrees.

    The chemical will be applied around the ENTIRE shoreline of Holiday Lake.

    Connie Sjerven along with members of the research team, Board of Directors, and Fish Committee will accompany Iowa Pond Guy, LLC staff during the application process.

    Property owners are encouraged and welcome to observe the application process.

    Results
    Mother Nature is in control so there is no guarantee! Local conditions will determine if Chara -algae will be under control for the summer session or if additional applications will be required.

    In order to monitor the effects of this chemical treatment, NO individual Holiday Lake property owner should add any chemicals to the water. To do so could impact the success of the approved chemical application and/or endanger fish, plant life as well as swimmers and pets.

    Direct questions regarding the water treatment process to Board of Directors.

    Thank you,
    Holiday Lake Board of Directors
