Expert to explain invasive lake weeds on Aug. 12

Lake weeds waterchestnut use this.jpg

NORTH FERRISBURGH — The summer of 2016 saw near-record low water levels in Lake Champlain due to drought conditions. Those conditions, following a winter of reduced ice cover, produced extreme weed growth along the shoreline. The proliferation of weeds made it difficult, and at times impossible, for residents and visitors to enjoy boating, swimming and other water activities. Although this summer has been much wetter than last, with less nuisance from weeds, the overall increase in weed growth has been apparent in the past several years and will likely continue.
