SCUBA divers returned to the Lower Lake

SCUBA divers returned to the Lower Lake after the July 4th holiday and harvested 132 bags (1 2/3 tons) of milfoil from the large bed at the Lower Lake inlet. This bed extends quite a ways north from the mouth of the inlet, as shown in the photo of the work site (view toward the eastern shore). The final work day the crew was breaking new ground and harvested 55 bags (2/3 ton) on that day alone. This year, drought and low water levels are spurring milfoil growth as light penetrates more easily. The divers will be returning to Chateaugay Lake in a couple of weeks to spend two weeks harvesting in the Upper Lake
