Hydrilla threatens lake health

The weather has been beautiful (except for Tuesday’s massive storm), and so many people have been enjoying boating, fishing and swimming in the lake. But, like usual, there is a threat to our waterways, and this time it’s in the form of a plant. Hydrilla was found last year in the inlet of Cayuga Lake, which is at the south end near Ithaca. This plant is an incredibly invasive aquatic weed that can choke the life out of a lake very quickly.
