Park spraying to begin
Sarasota Parks and Rec will spray canals in Lakeview Park today with Sonar A.S. (Floridone) to reduce weeds and other clogging vegetation. Some info on the herbicide here.
In about four weeks, the weeds should be sufficiently reduced that volunteers can have a clean-up day, picking up trash and removing debris.
After that, a plan to balance water in the canals and lake will be implemented.
