The Township of Middletown, NJ is planning to continue the Lake Management Program for Shadow Lake in 2018. The Program will focus on herbicide applications to control Water Chestnut (Trapa natans) and potentially, water meal (Wolffia sp.), throughout the season improving water quality conditions, as well as the recreational and aesthetic value of the lake. The Program is being carried out by NJDEP certified personnel from the lake management firm, SŌLitude Lake Management, registered with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (No. 99877A). NJDEP Aquatic Pesticide permit applications will be submitted requesting approval for the application of the herbicides Clipper (flumioxazin), Platoon (2,4d) and Clearcast (imazamox).
