History of weed control efforts:

In the fall of 2010 the towns of Canadice and Richmond proposed suspending the Aquatic Weed Harvesting Program (AWMP) for 2011. The HVA did not support this recommendation and developed a 2013-02-11 HVA Position on Harvesting . Ontario County developed a Honeoye Lake Weed Harvesting Final Questionnaire that was sent to all lakefront residents, with the results summarized in AWMP Survey_Results. In January 2011 the decision was made to continue the AWMP during the summer of 2011.

For further information on the aquatic vegetation harvesting program please visit the Ontario County Planning Department web site at http://www.co.ontario.ny.us/honeoyelake This web site will be updated periodically during the summer AWMP season with status updates.

Weed harvesting has been done on Honeoye Lake since 1985. From 1985 – 2004 a single harvester operated from late June to mid September. Based on the recommendation of Princeton Hydro and the support of the towns of Canadice and Richmond a second harvester was added in 2005.
