Weed Harvester Protocol


The RomeRock Association’s policy on its use of the weed harvester is to maintain an open channel for boats to pass through. Clearing out weeds around individual docks is a time consuming operation and the harvester is not an efficient tool for this type of work.

Removal of shoreline vegetation is the responsibility of the property owner. Garden rakes are better suited to remove weeds from around docks and seawalls.

Maneuvering the weed harvester too closely to docks risks damage to docks, nearby watercraft, and the harvester itself.

If weeds are becoming a problem in your channel or cove, please call the Association Office and we will add your lot to our list. Please ensure that your lot number is viable from your dock, this is a big help for our maintenance department.
