The Indian Lake Watershed Project, Ohio Department of Natural Resources and private contractors are all working together to provide more weed control. The ILWP purchased a brand-new weed harvester that will pull the weeds out by the roots instead of cutting them like a mower. This brings the ILWP fleet of weed harvesters up to two! ODNR is building a new harvester and barge that will operate on Indian Lake. In addition, local contractors are inventing their own ways and equipment to remove the weeds.
To work with ODNR and local contractors to keep the waters of Indian Lake navigable for travel and recreational use.
