$826,000 AIS Battle In Koronis

Starry stonywort is an algae, not a plant was discovered in the St. Lawrence River in 1978. Since then, it has spread to inland lakes in five states.

Dredging Project Stirs Up Old Complaints - Lake Placid, a 27,600-acre lake in Florida used to have a sand bottom and plenty of fish. Now, the spraying of invasive plants has deposited sediment from the vegetation after they decompose, creating a layer of silt that is almost 2 feet deep in some places. The silt stirs up in the water when boats pass, releasing a bad odor, making the water murky, and clogging boat engines.
