We have a major weed problem in Chautauqua Lake and it has only gotten worse over the past few years. We have a home on the great lake which has been in the family since 1930. I have been coming here for over 60 years and have never ever seen the lake in such a deplorable condition. The week problem was so bad that a number of homeowners on the lake could not put t heir boats in front of their own homes and I am one of them. People that rent their homes around the lake are losing money, as well as the state, because of t he condition of the lake. Everyone is being affected by this problem including all different types of businesses, etc.
