Project Title & Description
Invasive Plant Control, Ashtabula River Watershed
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-74. The project will reduce the abundance and distribution of invasive plant species including Phragmites australis, purple loosestrife, and hybrid cattail on 400 acres of land in the Ashtabula River watershed in Ohio. A map of invasive plant species will be used by the project manager to identify stream areas and wetlands where control of invasive species is a priority. The project will reduce the migration of invasive plants to floodplains, stream corridors and wetlands located outside the Ashtabula Area of Concern.
