The City of St. Cloud will be conducting an aerial herbicide treatment for aquatic vegetation restoration project along retention berms at Lakefront Park. Restoration work will span 56 acres of dense plant growth and are intended to enhance and protect the fish and wildlife habitat that has degraded over decades. The City has contracted with Applied Aquatics to conduct the treatment.

Work will begin at sunrise, take one hour, and on one day only during the week of February 24. During this period, the walking trail along Lakeshore Boulevard, the retention berms, fishing pier and Dan Terrell Memorial point will be closed. Please know that weather conditions could affect the time and date of this treatment event.
