Starry stonewort (SSW), an aggressive and invasive species of algae, has infiltrated Geneva Lake! Four out of five local municipalities have agreed to a plan to hydraulically dredge the lake (the safest and most effective method of combatting SSW), but the City of Lake Geneva continues to balk at the plan. Meanwhile, this ecological threat becomes greater by the day. We must urge all community leaders to step up NOW before SSW spoils the health, beauty and vitality of our cherished Geneva Lake.
Contact Lake Geneva city leaders, and urge them to sign the Shared Services Agreement to safely combat SSW!
