    sounds like lake george needs to vote for new people for park comission. they refuse to listen to public demand to not use herbicide, disregarding the very people they are supposed to represent. NO means NO!!, slightly toxic is toxic, like most chemicals the true detrimntal effects often takes decades to show. Lake George should not be forced if most people object!! remember to vote for new members

    One statement alone in this whole article is key. “restrictions on irrigation, livestock watering” should be the single red flag against using this in the waters of Lake George.
