The Eagle Lake Management District works effortlessly to maintain Eagle Lake while  creating an ideal environment for lake goers. From early June to mid August, workers hired by the ELMD work Monday through Friday to harvest plants and keep the lake clean.

Eagle Lake consists of two harvesters and one transporter. Workers maneuver the harvester to cut and collect the weeds and algae in various channels and areas of the lake. The harvesters then transfer the collection to the transporter which disposes of the weeds and other materials.

Harvesting can also be carried out in specific areas of the lake by lake goers. These areas include those around property and other areas (See DNR website for specifics).
