I walked through the field numerous times after the spraying before I was aware of this. I've both emailed and called the Town Manager as to why there was no posting and who should have been responsible for that, so far I've had no response. Besides my own exposure, I also worry about the drainage into the pond. Does anyone know about potential toxicity to wildlife?
