Hydrilla: An Invasive Water Weed

The highly invasive aquatic plant, Hydrilla verticillata, commonly known as 'hydrilla' or 'water thyme' was found in the Cayuga Inlet in 2011.  The Hydrilla Task Force is committed to eradication of hydrilla in the Cayuga Lake Watershed and to stopping its spread elsewhere.
