Aquatic Weed Harvester Used in the War Against Watermilfoil
Lake Hallie Lake Association is making some headway in the war they’ve been waging against the hybrid watermilfoil weed.

First discovered in Lake Hallie in 2005, watermilfoil is an invasive aquatic plant that has an aggressive tendency to form a thick mat-like layer as it floats on the water. If left unchecked, this plant can cover huge areas of water, blocking sunlight from reaching more desirable plants and making boat traffic difficult.

Using a weed harvesting machine, the Lake Association harvests from May to September, multiple times per week. Over the course of the season, from 200-300 tons of the plant are removed from the lake.

Herbicide Resistant Milfoil in Silver Lake - Silver Lake was so choked with aquatic weeds last summer that it was difficult to enjoy boating, swimming and fishing. The thick canopy of vegetation floating on the surface water turns out to be a mix of 20 different plant species, but not surprisingly, Eurasian watermilfoil, an aquatic invasive species, accounts for 60 percent of the growth.
