State Park Service to Perform Weed Harvesting on Lake Hopatcong
Dan Bello of the State Park Service told the Lake Hopatcong Commission weed harvesting equipment is being moved from the storage yard in Franklin to the lake this week.

Three machines will be on the lake immediately, with a fourth starting part-time in mid-June. Besides the harvesters, the transport barge is also ready to go, he said. Using the barge means the weeds can be off-loaded in the middle of the lake which saves time. Without the barge, the harvesters have to meet the trucks at certain points on the shore. The harvester operators will also pick up floating debris they come across as they work.

The state Department of Environmental Protection’s Holly Ezze in the pesticide unit has been taking calls from people who want to apply pesticides to sections of the lake off their docks. She has had all applicators contact Bello. He said it’s better to apply chemicals after the harvest, but he can’t tell private property owners what to do.

Hydrilla threatens the Finger Lakes - The plant hydrilla, was found late last summer in the creeks at the south end of Cayuga Lake at Ithaca. An initial control effort to beat it back last fall had failed and New York state officials have said they can only promise $50,000 in state money and possibly $380,000 in federal money could come through for this year as well.
