What is Frisco doing to protect its water supply against the possible contamination of the pesticide from aerial spraying? Clarke' s website states bees, ponds, lakes will be harmed if the pesticide is sprayed or washed in these areas. This pesticide is a carcinogenic. Why was this small unknown company headquarted in Chicago (Roselle) used insted of a well known national chemical company? What about the effects on pregnant women? What is Frisco position on the spraying?

Thank you for taking time to write and share your concerns. Frisco’s primary water source is Lavon Lake is in Collin County. At this time, no aerial spraying is being conducted in Collin County. On August 22, Denton County adopted a “Disaster Declaration”, which means the county has requested state and federal resources to employ aerial spraying of the unincorporated areas. Denton County is also asking its municipalities to decide whether they want to be included in aerial spraying mitigation efforts. At this time, Frisco does not plan to participate.

That said, our city leaders and staff are evaluating Frisco’s circumstances and monitoring news related to West Nile virus on a daily basis. For now, Frisco will continue with targeted, ground spraying using licensed contractors. On August 23, Frisco will be spraying areas in the vicinities of Frisco Lakes and Stonelake Estates.
