Keeping weeds at bay in Sullivan’s Pond
Members of the Halifax and Area Model Yacht Club are active users of Sullivan’s Pond and have been successful in producing national and international racing champions. In recent years, their ability to host regattas in Dartmouth has been hindered, as aquatic weeds get tangled in the model boats. For several weeks each year, the club is unable to use Sullivan’s Pond due to plant growth.
Regional Council has entered in to a new cost-sharing agreement with the club to begin regular harvesting of the weeds – allowing the club members to sail on the water all season long and continue their training.
