If you Can’t Beat the Milfoil – Rototill It!


Okanagan Basin Water Board built and operates three milfoil rototillers that have been in use for several decades. The machines were built for the sole purpose of chewing up the bottom of the lake and loosening up the roots of aquatic plants, especially Eurasian watermilfoil.

The program started when the Eurasian Milfoil weed was so bad it was impossible for people to use some of the main public beaches on Okanagan lakes.
