Merrimack River - Rounding Up Disks near Southwell Park
I launched into the Merrimack in Chelmsford at Southwell Park, directly opposite the intake for the City of Lowell's drinking water treatment plant. Before even getting in my boat I was rounding up disks at the boat ramp. Several were placed on my boat's hatchcover to give folks an idea of their small size...
I found my kayak to be the ideal vessel to get into the areas where the plastic disks remain trapped behind snags etc. To the folks at Hooksett, Kruger Inc., Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies I say "Y'all know me, know how I earn a livin'. I'll round up thousands of these birds for ya. Just pay me a reasonable rate and for that you'll get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing."
