This paper provides an assessment of nuisance aquatic plants and the problems associated with their control in the United States. Major emphasis is given to the Sun Belt states where aquatic plant control is critical due to introduction of exotic plants and extended growing seasons. The impact of aquatic plants (algae, non-native, and native plants) and their management techniques are discussed as they pertain to water quality and aquatic life. Herbicide residue data, both in the soil and water, and herbicide toxicity to aquatic organisms are presented and discussed.
