Once many of the invasive weeds become established in a body of water it is very difficult to completely remove them and sometimes becomes impossible.

Aquatic plants and weed pose the following risks when left unmanaged;

  • Flooding risk due to waterway choking
  • Increase silting levels which will increase the need for future and repeated dredging
  • Recreational sports can become affected by the weed, causing problems for boat craft and fishing locations
  • Sluices, filtration equipment and pumps can become blocked by detached or floating weed
  • During the decomposition stages of the weeds life cycle, it maybe possible to see a reduction in oxygen levels which will kill stocks, wildlife and possibly release nasty odours
  • Aquatic weeds can have a choking affect on other aquatic plant life such as Lillie’s, reducing their growth or even hindering their growth completely by reducing light levels

There are several key aspects to the successful management of aquatic weed and plants, the main ones are as follows;

  • Clearly try to identify the weed or plant type
  • Identify the growing patterns, locations and habitats
  • Possible causes of the outbreak, is there local land which is regularly treated with fertilisers?
