The report covers research investigating and evaluating methods for the efficient mechanical harvesting, handling, and disposal of excess aquatic vegetation. Mechanical removal of the excess vegetation is considered an ecologically sound approach to the problem. Described is moisture removal by rollers and presses. It has been demonstrated that large quantities of the chopped, partially dewatered plant material may be disposed of by spreading on land or composted. Other disposal methods are discussed.
