Hydrilla Survey - Initial Outcomes

Quick update on hydrilla survey work conducted over the summer in Cayuga Lake- The Floating Classroom, Ichthyology Associates & Racine-Johnson completed a survey of nearly 1500 sites distributed throughout the south end of Cayuga Lake and found no hydrilla specimens!  This is great news.

Meanwhile, herbicide treatments continue in Cayuga Inlet, and have been expanded to the mouth of the Inlet at the lighthouses.  This is in response to the discovery of one hydrilla specimen along the base of the concrete wall heading into the lake.
