The Army Corps of Engineers this summer used flouridone to eradicate a large patch of the hydrilla weed in Cayuga Lake near Aurora.
Hilary Lambert, Executive Director of the Cayuga Lake Watershed Network, tells Finger Lakes News Radio the Corps has recently inspected the area and the result is not good.
Smaller patches have also been found at the southern end of the lake. Lambert adds everyone is working to prevent what is happening in Florida.
On Saturday, the network is holding a lakewide hydrilla hunt. You can bring your hydrilla suspects to Long Point State Park and Sheldrake Point Park between 2:00 and 5:00 pm and experts will determine if it is the invasive weed.
