Delta Wanderings IV – Sept 2014 -- "Delta Weeding"

September 26, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

As the dreaded Egeria Densa weed has steadily taken over the water ways of Discovery Bay the community’s reaction has evolved. In the beginning rakes, ropes and chains were used by homeowners to pull weeds, then young entrepreneurs popped up offering to pull weeds for a fee, next came the divers with tanks, followed the California Division of Boating and Waterways spreading Fluridone Herbicide pellets (not this year). Now there is a father/ son team (Aquatic Harvesting 925-786-0095) operating a paddle driven mechanical weed harvester. They are offering their services to groups of homeowners looking to clean up entire bays or sections of bays.

Net Net though the weeds keep marching on. Get used to it as it is not expected that Water Hyacinth and Egeria Densa will ever be eradicated from the Delta area at best maybe it can be controlled and will require annual maintenance.  

What we really need is a real cold winter so Mother Nature can step in and wipe out this invasive Brazilian menace…
