Harvester makes short work of weeds

By Tanayah Wakefield

Lake Eden at North Lakes is looking tidier after a visit from an aquatic weed harvester last week.

Deputy Mayor Jodie Shipway (Div 4) says the visit was part of scheduled maintenance for the lake.

“Lake Eden is the centrepiece of North Lakes,” Cr Shipway says.

“I love that this machine not only improves the ‘look’ of the lake, but it also improves the water quality for our wildlife.”

A Moreton Bay Regional Council spokesperson says the harvester cuts and scoops weeds from the water.

“The weeds are then put into a compactor (like a rubbish truck) that transports them to a waste facility.

“There are eight lakes around the region on a regular maintenance schedule – Lake Eden is one of those.”
