Aquatic Harvester Removes 250 Tons of Weeds
Although it only operated for 22 days this fall, the Apple River Protection and Rehabilitation District (ARPRD) removed 112 loads of aquatic vegetation from the Apple River – 251 tons of weeds according to a report by operations manager, Dale Richardson.

Harvester operators volunteer their time and currently have 2 primary and 2 backup operators that received training from Aquarius Systems. There are several volunteers lined up for next year already too. According to Richardson, each load of harvested vegetation is approximately 275 cubic feet and weighs about 4,480 lbs.

The aquatic vegetation had been so bad the past few years that some did not even attempt to get their boats and pontoons in the water. After the second day of cutting, fishermen and recreational boaters were taking advantage of the open water to enjoy some of their favorite past times. The cut vegetation will be of great use to many as well, Dragonfly Nursery will use the vegetation as compost and farmer Brad Fougner will use the material as fertilizer next year.

Lynyrd Skymmr Rocks at Keeping Milwaukee Rivers Clean - Jane Dauffenbach, president of Aquarius Systems in North Prairie, which built Milwaukee's boat, said aquatic weed harvesters made by the company were more often named. Brooklyn has the Lake Mess Monster; Bakersfield, Calif., whacks watery weeds with the Mark Twain; and Indian Lake in Ohio uses the pun-free Lake Raker.
