Sylvia Lake, NY
Milfoil Abatement '10
At the beginning of this summer it was difficult to find aggressive growth areas around the lake requiring the placement of the 12’ x 20’ mats. The hope is that the barrier mats are working and maybe even the chemistry of the lake contributed to the decline. By the end of the summer however, we have concentrated on the shallow area at the south end of the lake that borders the Federal wetlands, to the left of Stacy’s.
Buoys were also placed to mark this area where all four of the mats were placed to treat an aggressive milfoil growth. Avoid entering the area because props will cut and spread the weeds. Special thanks to Gale Ferguson for allowing workers to dirty his boat. And to Mark and Chris Scott, Alex Carpenter, Evan Kraker, Roger Miller, Sandy Kraker, and the numbers of volunteers who helped on the surface.
