Abstract or Description  

The Ludwigia Control Project commenced in summer 2005 under the direction of the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation on behalf of the California Department of Fish & Game and the Sonoma County Water Agency. Ludwigia plants within two heavily infested areas of the Laguna de Santa Rosa were treated with herbicide and then removed by mechanical means.

The project operated under a NPDES permit issued by the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board. The Laguna Foundation made significant efforts to inform the public about the project including public workshops, mailed letters, email and website updates, press releases, and tours.
