Our main line of defense
Lake Dunmore and Fern lake have a relatively sophisticated milfoil harvesting operation (for the size of our lakes). We operate four suction harvesters and one supervisor boat throughout the season. Divers manually pull each plant from the bottom, carefully getting the entire root when possible. The entire plant is then sucked to the deck of the harvester boat where it is placed in buckets for disposal on land.
