The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is postponing the aquatic plant control scheduled on Lake Toho for the week of November 15. The FWC is postponing the treatment based on stakeholder feedback and will reschedule the treatment in the near future once staff has gathered additional public input.
The FWC manages hydrilla on a lake-by-lake basis using a collaborative approach. The FWC makes management decisions after comparing the benefits that low to moderate levels of hydrilla can provide for fish and wildlife, and the desires of various stakeholder groups against the impact this invasive plant can have on native plant communities, access and navigation, flood control, and management costs.
