AQUATIC PLANT HARVESTING
Office Contact: Erin Peruzzini, District Manager
The District implements a mechanical aquatic plant control program using
harvesters. This has proven to be an effective method for the control of excessive
plant growth. The program helps to regain some of the lost resource uses that have
occurred from non-point nutrient and sediment pollution. Harvesting is conducted
on Cayuga and Seneca Lakes as well as the canal.
