The Gadsden County Soil and Water Conservation District is offering a program to assist private landowners in their efforts to control infestations of troublesome and invasive aquatic weeds in ponds they own and manage.
The weed control cost-share program will accept applications immediately, and is funded by the Gadsden Soil and Water Conservation District.
Any private landowner within Gadsden County who has at least one acre of land with a pond on it is eligible to participate in this program.
Land must be within Gadsden County and must be on the Gadsden County Property Appraiser website property roll, which will verify the applicant’s ownership of the pond to be treated for aquatic weeds.
Funding for this program is limited and applications will be reviewed at monthly district meetings.
For more information, or to request an application, call Pam Tribue at the Gadsden Extension Office at (850) 875-7255.
