-Harvesting-

The Eagle Lake Management District works effortlessly to maintain Eagle Lake while creating an ideal environment for lake goers. From early June and into early fall, workers hired by the ELMD work weekdays to harvest invasive

and nuisance lake weeds.

 

The Management District operates two harvesters and one transporter. Workers maneuver the harvester to cut and collect weeds in problem areas around the lake. The harvesters off-load the collected weeds at a shore conveyor site. Then, the weeds are trucked away where they are used for agricultural mulch and fertilizer.

Harvesting can also be carried out in specific areas around docks and create boating lanes to help with navigation.

 These areas are subject to ever changing conditions and the DNR approved lake management plan.
