Why Use Orion Multi-Functional Floating Boom
Aquatic plants provide useful habitat for fish, invertebrates, aquatic mammals and birds. However, too much vegetation in a lake or pond can interfere with boating, fishing, swimming and other recreational activities. It can also hinder water movement, affect fish populations, and in some cases, reduce water quality. Exotic plants are more likely to be invasive than native species, and plant control measures may be necessary. Left unmanaged, some aquatic plants can become nuisances. Collect or exclude floating water plants such as Water Hyacinth, Water-Milfoil, Watermeal, Bladderwort, etc. using containment boom.
