As the story goes, around 1960 there was a small submarine being built on Lake George to explore the shipwrecks and depths of the lake. One summer night the submarine went missing and wasn't found for decades.
In the past, Lake George's Million Dollar beach has been closed due to high levels of E.coli on the beach and in the water. Now there is an algal bloom that could be harmful to swimmers or threaten local drinking water. The Department of Environmental Conservation is running tests to determine the water quality in the area.
