Study: Lake George in good condition

Posted: Updated:
LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. -

A new study says New York's Lake George is in good shape.

The 30-year review of the popular Adirondack lake finds it in quote "remarkably good condition" despite pressures from development around its shoreline.

The report from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute compiled and analyzed lake monitoring between 1980 and 2009. And despite the positive results, officials warn that rising salt levels and invasive species still pose a significant threat to the water quality in Lake George.
