The invasive weed first caught the attention of local homeowners and officials two years ago when it began clogging area bays and waterways up and down the Delta. The Department of Boating and Waterways began spraying areas in Discovery Bay and Bethel Island with the non-toxic chemical fluridone and will use the same treatment plan this time.
Treatment throughout the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Region is expected to run through the middle of October. For more information, visit www.dbw.ca.gov or call 888-326-2822.
