    Default Clearing toolies and sediment in lagoon?

    Has anyone had to clear toolies and sediment to open up their overgrown docks. I have no excavator access and need to stay under the radar of the tree huggers.

    I am thinking a trash pump and a smooth bore nozzle on the end of some pipe to blow the scum out of the lagoon just not sure it is the best or easiest way.

    Talk to Cameron, I know Lance has done it quite a bit down there and could probably fill you in and give you some tips.

    My neighbor has the same problem with his dock. He ties an old box spring from a mattress to a rope and drags it around behind his boat..pulls everything up right from the bottom. The spring coils pick up everything. Does it a couple times a year to keeps it under control..

    not sure if you will be able to get these but Rodeo is roundup with and aquatic label you could spray the Fragmitis with that but even though it has an aquatic label i dont recommend drenching the water with it by anymeans. stuff that works way better is Habitat but you you will have a really hard time getting that since its a soil sterilant but if you are able and have the hook ups somehow be careful with that stuff cause its pretty wicked it will definately sterilize the area you spray. dont let anyone see you do it.

    Roundup should work also to kill the frag. just dont get any in the water that wouldnt be good.

    The box spring idea is pretty good. I am sure there are some box springs out there in the desert that would lend themselves very well to this job. he round up willl be a little harder as the toolies grow out of the water. I will have to talk to Cameron too and see what lance does.
