Total of 60 harvester loads = 30 large truckloads = 600,000#

This week was the beginning the 2021 summer season as Pre-Season Curly Leaf crews hit the waters! Monday was a training day for operators. Starting Tuesday, there were 4 harvesters working on the overgrowth of curly leaf, harvesting navigational paths. Two harvesters worked out of the Lakewood shop and two harvesters worked out of Long Point. No harvesting will be done at this time in areas that were treated with herbicide.  Please see the maps attached. The pink areas are treatment zones. We are still waiting for confirmation that those areas were in fact treated. Maps will be updated once confirmation is received. The yellow areas are where we will concentrate our activities this week. 

Long Point crew worked their way north along the west shore from Ashville Bay to Quigley Park. Then focused on the narrows, clearing from Upper Stow to the Bridge. Work will continue in these areas again next week.

Lakewood crew worked from the CLA shop to the Lakewood boat launch. Then from the CLA shop north along the west shore through Lakewood to just above Shadyside. Work will continue along the west shore next week to Ashville Bay.

See our Monday post for next week’s full plan. We will continue our route around the lake focusing on problematic curly leaf areas.

Have a great holiday weekend. Stay safe!


Work Summary: May 17 – 28, 2021

Annual lake wide debris cleanup has been completed with 11 truckloads of debris removed from the shoreline. Crews worked both sides of the lake: in the southern basin to the I-86 bridge and north of the bridge along the eastern shore into Dewittville Bay.

Blue lines denote debris cleanup. Red line is the outlet cleanup.

Shorelines located within conservation areas were left undisturbed in order to protect and allow the aquatic life habitat to naturally evolve.

On May 19 – 20, lake association crew removed trash that had accumulated in the outlet between Chautauqua Lake and McCrea Point. Trash retrieved from the shoreline included: barrels, furniture, construction debris and an array of plastic items.
