Spiny waterflea, an invasive species of zooplankton has been found in certain waters in Warren County. This species can be easily spread to uninfected waters by anglers and boaters who do not properly dry or disinfect their boating and fishing equipment after using it in an infected water. Guidance on drying and disinfecting boating and fishing gear can be found on the DEC website.
