Tussock cleaning at Newnans Lake.
Mechanical harvesters spent part of the week at the Powers Park access channel on Newnans lake, two miles east of Gainesville.
The harvesters were used to shred tussocks, which are mats of floating vegetation. Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM’s Amanda Di Lella reports they were blocking access to the boat ramp and had the potential to cause other problems.
