District to treat water hyacinth and water lettuce on Peace River

Published June 9, 2009 - NewsChief.com
The Southwest Florida Water Management District is treating water hyacinth and water lettuce on portions of the Peace River this week and during the week of June 15-19.

Water hyacinth and water lettuce are troublesome aquatic plants from other countries that were introduced to Florida. Both species have the potential to expand rapidly and cause problems in many other tropical and subtropical countries where they have been introduced.
