Monster weed threatens Finger Lakes

New York — Advocates are warning the Finger Lakes and other upstate water bodies lakes could be overrun by a hyper-aggressive invasive plant unless more money is found for a major eradication effort.

The plant, hydrilla, was found late last summer in two creeks at the south end of Cayuga Lake at Ithaca. An initial effort last fall to control it failed to beat it back.
