Apple River Harvester Removes 1200 tons of Aquatic Plants

The strategy of the Apple River Protection and Rehabilitation District was to remove as much of the curly leaf pondweed as possible early, then systematically move up and down the Flowage keeping the main navigation channel clear plus providing access channels to the resident along the shoreline whenever practical.

Operating under the strict rules of a permit authorized by the Department of Natural Resources the harvester begin cutting on May 28th and operations ceased on August 29th. During this time the aquatic plant harvester collected 566 loads of weeds, measuring approximately 155,650 cubic feet in volume, and weighing about 2,535,680 pounds.

Due to its high nutrient content, the harvested weeds make excellent fertilizer and are put to good use by local growers and organic farmers in the area.

Algae Blooms Return to Lake Champlain - As steamy weather descended on Vermont, Lake Champlain users and scientists awaited test results to learn whether last week’s blue-green algae blooms have persisted in spots along Burlington, Missisquoi, and St. Albans bays. Although the blooms, which can product potentially dangerous toxins, test samples were well below levels of concern, the Health Department warned lake users, especially children and pets, because they are more likely to swallow water when swimming, to avoid areas with dense amounts of algae.
