New boat-washing station on Schroon Lake already keeping bad things out

This article appears in The Post-Star.

A new recycling boat decontamination station in Severance, a hamlet in Schroon, has already proven its worth and more, saving Schroon Lake from an infestation of invasive zebra mussels this summer.

The approximately $24,000 machine shoots 140-degree high-pressure water onto boats, not only removing any visible vegetation and dirt but killing off the larvae of invasives like Asian clams and zebra mussels. The wash is free.
