The Indian Lake Watershed Project (ILWP) Board of Directors voted to purchase an EcoHarvester to help combat the growing weeds in Indian Lake.
“This purchase is a step toward improving recreational conditions and controlling the abundant weed growth,” said Frank Giannola, ILWP Board President.
The $93,000.00 weed harvester will pull the weeds out by the roots instead of cutting them, reducing weed growth. The EcoHarvester will also be able to skim floating algae and weeds off the surface.
The harvester was delivered to the waters of Indian lake in the fall of 2021 and an in-water demonstration was completed.
Proceeds from the 2021 Nashville Hitmakers show went toward the purchase of the equipment. The ILWP is also accepting donations.
