Herbicide Considered for Invasive Species Removal in Lake George
The Lake George Park Commission has proposed to use an aquatic herbicide called ProcellaCOR as a trial this summer in two small areas of Lake George, Blairs Bay and Sheep Meadow Bay, to remove Eurasian watermilfoil, according to The Post Star.
Traditionally, the invasive plant has been removed by divers via “suction harvesting.” The Lake George Association has expressed concerns about using a chemical in the lake, although other lakes have shown success with this method.
The permit process is underway, and the Adirondack Park Agency is expected to review the proposal on April 14.

Lake George Mirror Editor Talks Lake George VS the Adirondacks
North Country Public Radio recently interviewed Lake George Mirror editor and co-owner Tony Hall on what makes Lake George, a part of the Adirondack Park, separate from the Adirondacks, and how it essentially functions as its own region.
When asked about Lake George’s tourism economy, and how it differs from other parts of the North Country, Hall pointed out that the Park tourism economy as a whole is about $1 billion a year; Lake George is responsible for about 50% of that. In addition, Lake George is more accessible to metropolitan areas than many other parts of the Adirondack Park.
