FWC conducts aquatic plant control on Lake Cypress

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will conduct aquatic plant control
in portions of Lake Cypress the week of April 15, weather permitting. The FWC will treat invasive
hydrilla in the Osceola County lake in areas where it is encroaching on beneficial native submersed
aquatic plants and could impact access to navigation and flood protection.

The FWC manages hydrilla on a lake-by-lake basis using a collaborative approach. The FWC makes
management decisions based on the impact this invasive plant can have on native plant communities,
access and navigation, flood control, and management costs.

For general waterbody information, fishing forecasts, virtual tours, annual workplans, boat ramp information,
and more, visit the “What’s Happening on My Lake” website at For more information
about the treatment, contact Ed Harris, FWC invasive plant management biologist, at 407-204-3310.
