Help Update Chateaugay Lake’s Milfoil Management Plan!

Several public information and discussion sessions are being planned for the July-August timeframe to help the Chateaugay Lake Foundation update its milfoil management strategy.

The first session, Milfoil Control History and Outlook, is set for Saturday morning, July 22, from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon at the American Legion in Lyon Mountain. We’ll review the history of Eurasian watermilfoil control in Chateaugay Lake and report on the results of the 2021 aquatic plant survey and implications for future management. The session will be facilitated by Brian Greene, Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator for the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP).

If you plan to attend, please RSVP using the link below, so we have an idea of how many people to prepare for. Registration for the session is free. 

A second session, More on ProcellaCOR EC, is scheduled for Tuesday evening, August 1st, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at the American Legion in Lyon Mountain. It will include a report on the results of a 2022 feasibility study on the potential use of the herbicide ProcellaCOR EC to control Eurasian watermilfoil in Chateaugay Lake. The study author, Glenn Sullivan of Solitude Lake Management, will present the results and be available to respond to questions and participate in the discussion.

At a final session later in August, Directions for Milfoil Control, attendees from the prior sessions will help develop goals and strategy for Chateaugay Lake’s future milfoil management. More details will follow via email and Facebook as the session is firmed up. The Chateaugay Lake Foundation Board feels strongly that public engagement is crucial as we chart the path forward, including the potential use of ProcellaCOR EC. Summer is a busy time on the lake, but we hope you can carve out some time to take part in this important planning!
