The northern portion of Lake Moraine, sometimes called the Little or Upper Lake, looks a bit nicer after the town of Madison recently made arrangements for a lake weed harvester to clean the area.
The harvester made repeated trips around the water, scooping up a wide variety of weeds and other assorted plant life. Using a piece of equipment that resembled a hay bale loader, the results were loaded into the back of a Town of Madison Highway Department truck.
According to a worker on the scene, the weeds were taken to a nearby farm to be used as fertilizer on plants and vegetables.
