California’s Division of Boating and Waterways has certified that a long anticipated plan to control the spread of multiple invasive plant species in Delta waterways is consistent with the Delta Stewardship Council’s Delta Plan. The DBW’s certification of its Aquatic Invasive Plant Control Program opens a public review period that ends March 4.
“We started the process of developing a complete aquatic invasive species control program several years ago under a partnership involving a number of state and federal agencies and my office,” said Assemblymember Jim Frazier, D-Discovery Bay. “This new plan is the first of its kind for the Delta that is comprehensive and includes treatment methods to control multiple invasive species. Previous plans addressed just one invasive species at a time.” Click on the following sentence to access the full story.
