Yesterday the harvester concluded cutting for the week based on poor visibility due to water quality conditions. The harvester may be used to skim floating material in limited areas near the boat launch later this week.
The work barge arrived today and Alpha Boats provided on-lake training for staff. This specialized work boat runs with a 40 HP outboard motor. It has a large work deck in front and a 9” draft (unloaded). Residents may see this blue boat on the lake as the crew will be using it for shoreline pickup of plant material. Residents may request service by calling 396-4458 or talking to Randy or Scott at the lake. Of course the barge can’t work in spaces too narrow for safe operation. The barge is 8’ wide by 24’ long (including the engine mount). Wood boards mounted on the side of the barge to protect docks and boats add an additional 3” to the width. Photos will follow soon!
The Ontario County Honeoye Lake Aquatic Vegetation Management Program (AVMP) is pleased to be able to broaden services to residents of the Honeoye Lake community with this new equipment. Grant funding in support of this equipment was made available through the Finger Lakes – Lake Ontario Watershed Protection Alliance.
