New Hyacinth Removing Machine Deployed at Blesbokspruit Lake

The City’s newly purchased amphibious excavator has made notable progress in clearing lakes and dams of the invasive hyacinth.

It has now been deployed to the Blesbokspruit in the Springs, which is also densely covered with hyacinth, making it hard for residents and the various bird species to enjoy the recreational benefits of the dam.

Furthermore, the City’s use of chemicals such as the herbicides to control water hyacinth has proven to be highly effective during the summer season when the plants are active.
