The Devils Lake Neighborhood Association made arrangements during the 2022 season for a ECO Harvester located in Coos Bay to be transported to our lake. Lakefront homeowners signed-up to have the harvester clear out the area in front of their homes. In return we asked for a minimum $300 donation. A portion of the donation was used to clear some of the most congested common areas of our lake. This was a limited trial and it's original duration was expanded to three week based on the availability of the harvesting equipment. This was not an attempt to clear the lake of weeds, it is a short duration trial to collect data on it operation.
The map of this project is available at this link.
It is anticipated that the DLNA will refine the process and in some way potentially extend this project for the next several years until the lake return to a state of equilibrium. We will report on this page once we have analyzed the results of our efforts during this trial.
