Mechanical Harvester to Gather Water Hyacinth
Removal of the non-native water hyacinth plant from Lake Chapala has been tried unsuccessfully in the past but the Jalisco state government has not given up.

A year-long, 4-million-peso project is now getting under way to remove the invasive species, currently estimated to cover about 3% of the lake’s 114,000-hectare surface.

The project, called Chapala Limpio or Clean Chapala, employs an aquatic weed harvester to collect the plants, which are then fed manually on to a 12-meter-long conveyor belt. A tractor loads them in to a container before they are removed for composting.
