NAPLES, Maine - An aquatic pest has been found on another Maine lake.
Officials say invasive milfoil has overtaken half an acre on Long Lake, raising fears that it could spread and create problems for boaters and swimmers.
Milfoil has reportedly infested the neighboring Brandy Pond and the Songo River for years but Long Lake in Naples had been thought to be safe from the plant.
Volunteers were searching the lake Tuesday to determine the extent of the infestation. A team is also at the lake to begin removing the invasive plants.
