Schroon Lake in New York is infested with curly leaf pondweed and milfoil, two invasive species. But lake advocates and state and local officials are working to keep other aquatic invasives out through a new boat washing station in Severance.
Partners are working to keep Schroon Lake free of invasive species, though the lake is already populated with milfoil. Signs are seen at the Schroon Lake boat launch in the town of Schroon, warning boaters to stay away for the milfoil as prop chop will spread the invasive species.
One sign posted to warn boaters states, “Your hull & prop will chop & spread this invasive weed creating a MAJOR THREAT to the health of this lake!”
