Water Solider Could be Added to Michigan Prohibited Plant List
Water soldier was identified as one of the 16 “least-wanted species” aquatic invasive species at the 2013 meeting of the Council of Great Lakes Governors and Canadian Premiers. Prevention of new invasive species and stopping the spread of existing invasive species are considered vital for limiting the impacts on Michigan’s ecology, economy and natural resources.

Water soldier is an invasive aquatic plant native to Europe and northwest Asia. This species forms dense mats of floating vegetation that can hinder recreational activities such as boating, fishing and swimming. The sharp serrated edges of water soldier leaves can cut swimmers and people who handle the plant.

In addition, the dense floating mats can crowd out native vegetation and have the potential to alter water chemistry that may have adverse effects on the environment.
