Alligator Lake Excavation Almost Complete
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has teamed up with Perry Construction Company to help clean Alligator Lake in Columbia County.

The goal of the project is to improve the habitat for fisheries and so far they have excavated about five thousand yards of muck and weeds, which combine to form floating islands of vegetation, called tussocks.

In order to get control of the weeds, they use machinery such as an aquatic weed harvester and amphibious excavators.

Removing these tussocks allows more sunlight to penetrate the lake, improving the overall quality of the ecosystem.

Wisconsin - the Birthplace of the Modern Weed Harvesters - The first aquatic plant harvester was built in response to fussy Chicago housewives! Around the turn of the century, ice was harvested from Wisconsin lakes destined for Chicago iceboxes. The housewives there didn't like cleaning out the weeds when the ice melted. This boat was designed to cut down the weeds in the fall so that clean ice could be harvested in the winter.
