Harvest Team 2_edited-2

Weed harvesting on Watkins Lake is about to begin for 2014.

The harvester has had necessary repairs and a tune-up and is ready to begin cutting.

Pat Riley and Jim Wojiechowski under the direction of program manager, Pat Deibel are ready for several months of activity to help make boating and recreation on the lake more pleasurable.

Riding the harvesting equipment is only part of their job as they are responsible for the mechanical upkeep of the harvester which a times can be challenging.  Last year the harvest team took over 175 loads of weeds  out of the lake…loaded them on a truck and drove them to a site to dry out recycled.

This year the team has made a couple of changes to improve the efficiency of the operation and use our resources more wisely.
