New "surf rake" purchased for Crescent Beach

The Algoma Public Works department took care of cleaning up Crescent Beach this past week as it waited for a new piece of equipment called a “surf rake” to arrive.  Workers gathered and burned a considerable amount of driftwood on Tuesday that had washed up on the beach this spring due to higher lake levels.


Algoma Public Works Director Matt Murphy says the city purchased a new beach cleaner thanks to a grant.  The pull-behind “surf rake” grooms a six-foot path that takes care of all types of debris on the beach.

 

 

Murphy adds that the City of Two Rivers is currently using the same surf rake model Algoma purchased.  The unit costs roughly $50,000 and will be used approximately two to three times a month to maintain Crescent Beach throughout the year.
