Corps of Engineers puts a large Trash Skimmer into service
The US Army Corps of Engineers Huntington District bought a TH-34 Trash Hunter, also known as a debris skimmer or trash skimmer, from Aquarius Systems for use in Fish Trap Lake, in Eastern Kentucky. Known for years to locals as "Trash Trap Lake," Congressman Hal Rogers (R - KY) worked diligently with the Corps and 11 other agencies to bring financing home to support the clean-up project.

The machine was christened on sunny day in April 1999, where Congressman Rogers, State Rep Chris Ratliff, State Senator Gary Johnson, Lt. Col David Bartlett, Tony Turner of Kentucky PRIDE, and Jane Dauffenbach, President of Aquarius Systems made remarks before a crowd of supporters, school children, interested locals, and various media. Karen Gibson, Pike County Judge Executive, acted as the Master of Ceremonies. The Trash Hunter will be used to capture the floating debris before it clogs the water intakes of the hydroelectric power dam. The machine will also maintain a clean water surface for recreational users of the reservoir.
