Due to this year’s ProcellaCor treatment that appears to have eradicated most of the Eurasian milfoil in the lake, the EcoHarvester was only used to harvest water chestnuts. Since most of the water chestnuts reside in shallower water at the north end of the lake, the harvester was easily able to pull them out with their roots well before the nutlets had a chance to grow. About 1 acre of water chestnuts was harvested on July 7th in accordance with our DEC permit.
