Water Weed Dispute

A four-year battle over aquatic plants is pitting neighbor against neighbor at Haven Lake in Mason County. The bitter dispute over how to treat the common waterweed and big leaf pondweed that grow on the lake bottom has spawned two lawsuits, accusations of threats and gunfire and thousands of calls and emails to the Governor’s office, State agencies and the Mason County Sheriff’s Office.

Govt targets destructive river weeds

The NSW government is launching an offensive against aquatic weeds that it says are damaging rivers in the Hawkesbury-Nepean region.

“The project will tackle some of the most serious and destructive aquatic weeds in the country, including Salvinia, Water Hyacinth, Alligator weed, Senegal Tea plant and Egeria,” Ms Hodgkinson said in a statement.
