Buckets of hyacinth

The St. Mary Consolidated Drainage District 2 is in the process of removing water hyacinths from the drainage canals. Maintenance contractor Peter Businelle is doing the work for the district. Above, Businelle picks up a load of the hyacinths with a backhoe while two other workers with hook lines pull the plants to an area where Businelle can grab them.
