[ARCHIVED] Milfoil Control Grant Awarded for Lake Ballinger

Lake Ballinger Lily Pads

This amount will cover costs for approved herbicide application, as well as a free public workshop on how to control invasive weeds by hand. Ways to reduce the chance of spreading invasive aquatic weeds will also be covered.

It is anticipated that grant funding will be available by April 1, 2019, and that the first herbicide application of 25% of the lake will take place this summer. Stay tuned for an update on a date, time, and place for our workshop and public meeting on Lake Ballinger invasive weed control this spring/summer. A special thanks goes out to the Lake Ballinger invasive weed citizen steering committee, who worked hard this past summer to develop our control strategy.

For more background information on Lake Ballinger Milfoil, please see our Integrated Aquatic Vegetation Plan posted on the Mountlake Terrace website or contact Laura Reed, Stormwater Program Manager at or (425) 744-6226.
