Divers returned to Chateaugay Lake

Divers returned to Chateaugay Lake the weeks of 8/16 and 8/23 to finish up the milfoil harvesting season with work in the South Inlet. They worked south from Indian Point, harvesting 161 bags or 2.0 tons of milfoil the first week, and 205 bags or 2.6 tons as they reached denser growth the second week. Dense conditions are shown in the photo of the westernmost buoy marking the South Inlet milfoil bed. On Wednesday, the divers collected 67 bags in one day–a seasonal record for a three-person crew this summer, according to the dive team. With hard work and favorable working conditions, the team made good progress in this high-density area.
