WEED HARVESTING

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.
