The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Lake George Park Commission have announced a strategic plan to address invasive species in Lake George. But critics say the policies won’t help the invasives fight.
The Lake George Park Commission will hold a special meeting next week to discuss a plan to prevent aquatic invasive species from entering the lake.
The meeting on Tuesday follows a summer and fall assessing alternatives for keeping new invasive species out of Lake George. The Lake George Park Commission worked with communities surrounding the basin. It resulted in a recommendation from their consultant that a mandatory boat inspection program be imposed. Commission Executive Director Dave Wick says the upcoming meeting will examine how such a mandatory program would work.
