LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) - There's a slight improvement in the number of boats requiring decontamination to remove invasive species around New York's Lake George.
    
The Post-Star says a report by the Lake George Park Commission 17 finds percent of the boats inspected there in 2017 required the procedure, compared to 18 percent the year before.
    
The report says a total of 6,684 boats have received a free decontamination since the program began in 2014.
    
The most prevalent invasive species found is a plant called Eurasian milfoil.
    
The number of boats with zebra mussels more than doubled. The commission's executive director, David Wick, attributes that to a large number of boats coming from Saratoga Lake.
    
He says experts are working to address that issue.
