Weed Watch - Summer

The IDWA are targeting Water Hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) during the summer months.

Water hyacinth smothers the surface of the waterways, dams, irrigation channels and drains.

Growing along the east coast from the Queensland border down to Kiama and some inland NSW areas, it is found mostly in slow flowing fresh water.
