Tussock removal vessel delivered to county

In November 2022, County Commissioners approved the purchase of a specialized watercraft to remove tussock and invasive vegetation from some county waterways. On June 13, 2023, the brand-new Eco Harvester was delivered to Lake Townsend.

The Eco Harvester will be used to keep the waterways clear for boaters at Lake Lindsey, Hunters Lake, Mountain Lake, Lake Bystre, Lake Townsend, and the Withlacoochee and Nobleton Rivers.

Tussock is a group of grass species that live in waterways as well as on land. In the water, tussock forms “floating islands,” creating immovable patches of vegetation that can grow quite large. The Eco Harvester will remove these areas, allowing for the passage of watercraft.
