The Lake George Park Commission is pushing for a boat decontamination station at Norowal Marina this summer, despite being accused of singling out just one boatyard on the lake. The Park Commission’s Committee on Invasive Species would like to try out the boat washing and decontamination program this spring, in hopes of making it mandatory for boaters on Lake George in the future.
The plan will be quite costly, the Park Commission is hoping for $300,000 in funding from the state Environmental Protection Fund. The decontamination machine itself costs $40,000. Inspections will be carried out by the Lake George Association’s stewards, and will cost the Park Commission another $27,000.
