Where will treatment take place?

Fragrant Water Lily treatment will take place near shoreline areas of Spanaway Lake where the plant is present. To see a map of potential lily treatment areas, please visit https://arcg.is/09jaqT.

Curly Leaf Pondweed locations will need to be surveyed in spring of 2023 to determine the entire location and extent of the plant population. The treatment applicator will post signs in both the treated and potentially affected areas 24 to 48 hours before treatments are applied.
