Good morning Port Bay Residents,
Wayne County Soil & Water Conservation began our 1st week of harvesting season in 2016 on the South End of Port Bay last week, with relatively high water but a good clean up of weeds. Unfortunately first day in the water, a fuel solenoid went on Boat #3 which left two harvesters in function. The Aquatic Vegetative Control Program (AVC) runs Monday through Thursday 10 hour days as to not impede recreation on the Bay on Friday’s for Bay folk and other recreational enthusiasts.
Thursday afternoon, the program moved to the north end of Port Bay to begin work on the west side before moving to the east side throughout this week. Yesterday, a main hydraulic hose broke on Boat #4 and put it down until it can be fixed. Our Crew Leader has been working feverishly to come up with a solution that will put Boat #4 back in function as quickly as possible.
Please understand we will work to clean up areas around the bay as efficiently as possible. If you have questions about the future schedule, policies and procedures and general mission of the program, please visit http://www.waynecountynysoilandwater.org/aquatic-vegetative-control/
