Expense of Invasive Hydrilla
Of all the invasive plants in Florida’s waterways, hydrilla costs the most to contain -- $66 million over a seven-year period -- according to Lyn Gettys, a University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences researcher. And the plant appears to have the potential to be a problem away from the coast such as in Wisconsin and other Midwestern states.

From 2008 to 2015, Florida state and federal water resource managers spent about $125 million to control invasive aquatic plants. Of that $125 million, about $66 million goes to control hydrilla, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

UF/IFAS researchers are researching and finding new ways to use less chemical treatment, and less money to manage hydrilla.

Government Shut-Down Leads to Weed Infested Waters - Due to a government shut-down, many Minnesota Lakes are becoming infested with weeds resulting in the inability to use the waters for recreation. Permits to harvest invasive weeds, which are issued by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, have been suspended because no one from the state is available to oversee the work. Normally, three weed harvesters would be cutting milfoil on Lake Minnetonka and another would be cutting weeds on Lake Calhoun. All of which has been suspended.
