      Includes on-line version of pamphlet: "What You Should Know, What You Can Do" (Note: chemical control in Wisconsin IS allowed over open water, but it requires a different herbicide (Rodeo) and a permit from WDNR (call regional office and ask for Aquatic Plant Management Coordinator). Best method is to cut stems and dab 20-40% active ingredient on the stump.)
