068 Aquatic Weed Management Specialist
Department of Plant Sciences, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, UC Davis
Proposed Area of Coverage
- Aquatic Weed Management Specialist (doc), uploaded 04/16/2014 by Mary Delany
This sounds like a needed position. I wish you would have included management of the thousands of miles of irrigation canals in the state. The hundreds of public agencies & irrigation districts are challenged with the task of keeping canals clear and also meeting the many water quality challenges imposed upon them.
Aquatic weeds are a serious problem in the Delta and Lake Tahoe as well as many lakes and waterways in California, costing millions of dollars for control. This position will increase the capacity and effectiveness of addressing weeds that negatively impact water quality, wildlife habitat, and recreation. The California Invasive Plant Council works with land managers throughout California and relies on materials and expertise provided by UCCE specialists.
