    Divers submerge beneath Cobbossee Stream in Gardiner Monday while training to control invasive aquatic species. The two-day workshop hosted by the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitor Program taught 20 workers from eight non-profits from across Maine methods on how to remove plants such as milfoil, according to Roberta Hill of the monitoring program.
