Herbicides weighed in hydrilla fight

Ithaca — Two herbicides are being evaluated by a local task force to treat an invasive hydrilla infestation detected in the Cayuga Inlet late last summer, and county officials are urging the state to fund the eradication effort.

Tompkins County Environmental Health Director Liz Cameron said some combination of endothol and flurodone may be used to knock back several beds of hydrilla in the inlet.
