Second Aquatic Invasive Found in Norwood Lake
Efforts to remove invasive Eurasian milfoil from Norwood Lake have led to the discovery of an unidentified plant species that also is believed to be invasive.

Milfoil is common in many New York lakes, ponds and rivers. Left on its own, it can choke out life and make boating or fishing difficult. It was discovered in Norwood Lake in small amounts last year. While performing a survey of the milfoil, workers discovered ½ acre patch of the unidentified plant.

Samples of the plant to the state Department of Environmental Conservation for identification, but results were inconclusive. The plant will likely flower in August; more samples can be collected then, and it will be easier to identify.

Fertilizer Ordinances Protect Lakes - When fertilizer is used near the lake, phosphorus enters the waterbody in storm runoff. Phosphorus is a nutrient for milfoil and other aquatic plants. In addition, it can create algae blooms, turn the water green, cloud the water, cause odor problems, and deplete the oxygen for fish and other species, effectively suffocating them.
