Lewis Creek and Adjacent Lake Shore Advisory Goes Into Effect

The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announces the 9th of 10 scheduled Lake Champlain fall sea lamprey control treatments with Lewis Creek on Tuesday, September 30, 2014.

A water-use advisory goes into effect at 6 am for Lewis Creek water-users from Scotts Pond Dam to the mouth.

A water-use advisory goes into effect at 6 pm for Lake Champlain water users located from 1.5 miles north to 1.5 miles south of the Lewis Creek mouth.

Both advisories are expected to last 2-4 days.

All previous advisories for rivers treated in New York State have been lifted and normal activities may resume.

The Service recommends against using river of lake water in these areas for household, agricultural and recreational uses while the advisories are in effect.

Advisories will be lifted as soon as monitoring indicates that the chemical has dissipated. Stay tuned for future updates.
