Asked March 1, 2015, 2:53 AM EST

where can I get information regarding aquatic weed control either with pesticides or without. I am chairman of a watershed council and we are running into all the things we cannot use but can find very little if anything that we can use ....also methods of aquatic weed control that have worked without pesticides.

Hello,
Sorry it took me some time to get back to you.
We follow the guidelines in the PNW Weed Handbook. Here is a link to the document http://pnwhandbooks.org/weed/other-areas/aquatic-weed-contol. Dr. Ed Peachey is the Weed Specialist that compiles this information every year from a variety of university specialists. You can access the whole handbook on-line or order a copy from OSU. Here is a link to the home page http://pnwhandbooks.org/weed/.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thank you,
Derek Godwin
