Ithaca College students collaborated with WRFI Community Radio to produce a radio series that monitors the health of Cayuga Lake.
More than two years after making its way into the Cayuga Inlet, the aquatic invasive species of plant known as hydrilla verticillata is finally being driven out of the Ithaca community.
It’s back. To fund the eradication of hydrilla verticillata, an invasive aquatic species that first reared its head last fall, a local environmental task force has requested $700,000 to $1 million in funding from New York state.
The Tompkins County Legislature has approved $26,100 in contingency funds to take the first steps toward eradicating the invasive aquatic species invading the Cayuga Inlet. Application of the herbicide will begin Tuesday.
