The summer season is in full swing and shore owners have proven vigilant in their commitment to fight Eurasian milfoil infestation on Upper Saranac Lake. To date, I have received numerous calls and confirmed positive identification of this invasive species along various areas of the lake. This information has been forwarded to the diving team and, while some milfoil has already been removed, I am anticipating the speedy response of the diving team to manage the remaining removal/harvesting. Additional reports of shoreline cutting and growth of the Purple Loosestrife (a lesser known invasive weed) have also been received. Your continued support and concerns for lake preservation are appreciated.
