Supporting West Nortorn Township's program to purchase, staff and maintain an Eco Harvester machine to remove the invasive weeds from the Norristown Schuylkill River Basin.
Aquatic Weed Harvester - Harvesting Lake Weeds, Pulling, Collecting
Last season Invasive weeds infested over 100 acres of river with densely matted vegetation which rendered the river unusable for fishermen , boaters , rowers , any water activity , swimmers , and local water rescue teams asked for help –they could not access large sections of the river . The Schuylkill scrub ( river clean up ) in 2017 removed 25,000 lbs of trash & debris during May with 459 volunteers also removing dozens of tires , 500 gal propane tank , entire boat trailer , 3 T.V.’s , king size mattress and 3,000+ glass and plastic bottles just from the Norristown Basin .
Our first goal is to fund and support the operation of the Aquatic Week Harvester that is being used to remove the Invasive Weeds from our watershed.
