Tons of Aquatic Vegetation Removed from Huron River


About 40 trailers full of vallisneria americana, or eelgrass, have been removed from a site on the river nearby the Hamburg Road bridge since Monday, and about another 30 truckloads will be removed by Friday, said Pat Hohl, township supervisor.

A Professional Lake Management Inc. crew is using operator-run machinery to harvest, or chop, the thick weeds, which would reach chest-level if someone waded into the river, Hohl said.

The process does not involve chemical applications.
