A large stand of water chestnut in the Salmon River Cove.  If left unchecked, this could blanket the entire surface of the river's many coves. Our DEEP staff pulls up alongside the stand in a large flat-bottomed aluminum boat and climbs over the side in waist deep water to scoop up armfuls and pull the roots out.  We fill the boat and take it back to the boat launch to load it in a truck for disposal.
