Tussocks continue to cause problems at Orange Lake
Orange Lake, Florida -- "Tussocks" still cause major problems for business owners at Orange Lake.
After years of low water levels at Orange and Lochloosa lakes, the water soon rose bringing the floating mud and trees, or floating islands.
Once they break off they go up and down the lakes, preventing many boaters from getting to one location to the next.
Long time Orange Lake residents say they've seen this happen too many times, and want Florida Wildlife workers to address the issue.
Orange Lake fishing resort owner Kelly George says the tussocks are affecting her business.
We contacted FWC biologists and are waiting for them to tell us what their plan of action is for the tussocks.
