At an undisclosed time Friday, new warning signs are expected to be posted at Elmendorf Lake Park, alerting the public about a chemical that’s sprayed in the area.
The spraying isn’t new. It’s been happening for more than a year.
Every four minutes at Elmendorf, a machine inside a grey metal box on the side of the lake pumps out a foggy mist that smells like grape Kool-Aid.
It’s called the Bird Buffer, a chemical mixture that is designed to irritate birds.
