County legislators are considering providing some type of support to a group trying to get rid of the Eurasian milfoil infestation in Black Lake, New York.
The milfoil problem is exacerbated when propellers on boats going through the lake chop it up (prop chop) the and spread its seeds. Legislators debated what methods could stop that. One group wants to dig a 50-foot channel to keep the propellers away from the milfoil. Another method could be to rent a machine that mechanically harvests the milfoil.
