Frequently Asked Questions

When are the pier pick up dates?


DLSD will again pick up aquatic plants left at the end of piers.  Property owners are required to call 728-4100 before the scheduled pick up dates and request a pick up.  Requests may be left in the DLSD general voicemail box.  Please leave your name, address and pier number.  Pick up of only aquatic plant material will take place on the dates listed below.  Do not include trash, garbage or any other debris in the pile left at the end of your pier.  Our weed harvesting crews will not pick up piles which contain any materials other than aquatic plants.  ***We limit to 10 minutes per pier***

What qualifies as aquatic plant material?

Aquatic plant material is defined as plants that have adapted to living permanently saturated in water.  This excludes terrestrial plants, which are those that grow on, in, or from land.

When does the Mechanical Harvesting start?

Our plans for mechanical harvesting remain much the same as past years.  We intend to launch our harvesting equipment the week of May 20th and begin the initial harvesting of plants in the access channels at that time.  After June 15th we will harvest all areas of the lake as conditions warrant.
