FWC to hold public meeting in Gainesville on aquatic plant herbicide treatment program

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2019

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will hold a public meeting to gather community input about the agency’s aquatic plant herbicide treatment program. The Gainesville meeting will be held from 5:30- 8:30 p.m. on February 19 at the Alachua County Library Headquarters, 401 E. University Ave., Gainesville, FL 32601. FWC has required counties to pause herbicide treatment programs on public waterbodies funded by the State of Florida’s cooperative aquatic plant management program.

The meeting will provide the public with an opportunity to provide feedback about management activities on Florida water bodies during the past 12 months. A complete list of FWC public meetings related to this topic can be found at MyFWC.com/Invasiveplants. This webpage will be updated with any additional meeting dates. Comments may be sent to Invasiveplants@MyFWC.com. Residents may also contact their state representatives with their thoughts on this topic.

Invasive plants degrade and diminish Florida's waterways by displacing native plant communities. Some invasive aquatic plants pose a significant threat to human welfare and cause economic problems by impeding flood control and affecting recreational use of waterways.
