The harvester has moved to the State Boat Launch. Thanks to the folks at California Ranch for being great neighbors during our operations this summer! A volunteer team of local residents is working with the AVMP staff to study lake conditions and harvesting operations, and recommendations are forthcoming. Thanks to these folks for your interest, time and valuable advice! The harvester operated at the south end this week, where significant macrophyte growth was observed, and removed 25 dump truck loads of material The season total to date is 116 loads, estimated at 580 wet tons of vegetation. We recognize Eelgrass fragments are a nuisance, and the operators are taking measures to skim up fragments after working in an area.
