Abstract:

This bulletin is published in accordance with AR 25-30 as one of the information dissemination functions of the Environmental Laboratory of the Engineer Research and Development Center at the Waterways Experiment Station. It is principally intended to be a forum whereby information pertaining to and resulting from the Corps of Engineers nationwide Aquatic Plant Control Research Program APCRP can be rapidly and widely disseminated to Corps District and Division offices and other Federal and State agencies, universities, research institutes, corporations, and individuals. Contributions are solicited, but should be relevant to the management of aquatic plants, providing tools and techniques for the control of problem aquatic plant infestations in the Nations waterways. These management methods must be effective, economical, and environmentally compatible. The contents of this bulletin are not to be used for advertising, publication, or promotional purposes. Citation of trade names does not constitute an official endorsement or approval of the use of such commercial products. This bulletin will be issued on an irregular basis as dictated by the quantity and importance of information to be disseminated. Aquatic vegetation is important, both in terms of positive and negative effects, to anglers, boaters, utilities, shorefront property owners, and watenfowl interests who utilize reservoirs. Multiple users of lakes and reservoirs complicate aquatic plant management decisions. Balancing limited funds for aquatic plant management is often difficult due to a lack of information about user preferences and the economic benefits of plant control.
