Vermont state officials announced yesterday that didymo algae was found in the upper Batten Kill late last week, adding to the list of northeast U.S. rivers where the invasive algae has been discovered. “The Batten Kill discovery last week follows similar discoveries of the algae in the Connecticut and White rivers earlier this year. State officials have posted signs in the area that the algae were discovered in last month, including in the towns of Royalton, Bethel and Stockbridge.” Daniel Barlow of the Vermont Press Bureau.
