I don't know if this is such a good idea. I've used rotenone as a natural pesticide in my garden, but the instructions warn not to eat produce from plants treated with rotenone at least three days after treatment. What happens to back country campers drinking the lake water treated with rotenone? I wouldn't want to drink it.

Our community gardens here in Concord have banned it's use for safety reasons.

Paul, they are closing those BC campsites 8/25/2019 to 6/15/20 And I would think they'll post signs about the rotenone treatment.

I think Steve mis-typed the June 15 date. He meant 6/15/20 not 6/15/19
