Week 3 Milfoil Harvesting Update: Lower Lake Inlet
In the week leading up to the July 4th holiday, the milfoil divers harvested 159 bags of milfoil (3,975 pounds or almost two tons) from the inlet to the Lower Lake. The divers worked to clear a boating lane through the milfoil bed that stretches across the south end of the Lower Lake. Large marker buoys have now been placed at either end of the cleared path to guide boaters. At the end of each workday, the divers unload the bags into a trailer that is used to transport the collected milfoil for composting at approved locations nearby. Last Thursday, they spoke about the harvesting process with some members of the ADK Shatagee Woods chapter, who were meeting nearby (https://shatageeadk.org/).
