 The following notice was received from the Idaho State Department of Agriculture


An aquatic herbicide application to treat the aquatic noxious weed Eurasian watermilfoil is planned for Hayden Lake the week of May 31, 2016.  The aquatic herbicide Reward (diquat dibromide, EPA Registration # 100-1091) will be applied to up to 90 acres in areas of Hayden Lake to control Eurasian watermilfoil.

Irrigation and drinking water restrictions will be in effect in treated and adjacent areas until herbicide residue levels in the water are within levels specified by the herbicide label.  Homeowners who use water from the lake for drinking or irrigation are advised to not use lake water until herbicide residue samples indicate it is acceptable to do so.

Restrictions will be in effect for a minimum of five (5) days or more depending on residue results.  For up-to-date information about treatment plans and water use restrictions visit the applicator’s website:

Brown Water in Rimrock
The Rimrock system is experiencing sporadic brown water possibly due to increased water usage in the area. We want to advise everyone in the area to check the color of their water before doing any laundry to prevent color damage. You can do this by filling a white bowl or cup with water from your faucet. Your water is safe to drink. 

During daylight savings time our crew & office will be switching to a 4 day work week, 10 hours per day.  Beginning March 14, 2016, our hours will be:

Monday thru Thursday 6:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. 

Closed:  Friday, Saturday, Sunday

 This change will allow our crew more daylight hours to complete projects without incurring overtime. 

 We will return to our Monday - Friday schedule at the end of Daylight Savings Time, November 7, 2016.
