As you can see in the article below (Republican American August 27, 2014), Goshen has hired Dr. George Knoecklein to manage weed control in Tyler Lake, West End Pond, and Dog Pond. We will need to be involved in the decision -making in our Town as Dr. Knoecklein has recommended the application of non-organic chemicals in both Bantam Lake and Lake Quassapaug. At Lake Quassapaug, the residents prevailed and stopped the application of toxic chemicals.
We do not want non-organic chemicals used in the Woodridge Lake watershed which includes Tyler Lake and West End Pond.
We recommend residents of Woodridge Lake send letters to First Selectman Bob Valentine letting him know you oppose the use of herbicides in our watershed.
