Roland Beck, from the State Park’s Office at Letchworth, and the SLA WQ Committee worked together to make available this very important disposal station. This will help alleviate the possibility of invasive species being transported into Silver Lake or from Silver Lake to another body of water. The Invasive Disposal Station is installed at the State Public Launch at the South west end of Silver Lake. Let us all do our part and use this valuable tool.
