    Small craft operators use specialized mechanical harvesters to load pontoon boats that will carry the invasive water hyacinth to an upland disposal site at the Harney pond canal, Florida, December 4, 2019. As of December 2019 we have 3500 acres of invasive aquatic plants. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, along with is five partner agencies work together to tackle noxious weeds such as the water hyacinth that block transportation routes, destroys infrastructure and threaten native species. The Corps, Invasive Species Management Branch is committed to the management of invasive species in or national and regional ecosystem restoration program.
