Ponds are nutrient sinks-a place where incoming nutrients from the watershed accumulate over time. This makes ponds the perfect place for aquatic vegetation to grow, often negatively impacting evaporation rates, recreation, aesthetic value, fish, and wildlife habitat. Preventing aquatic vegetation from entering or becoming established in a pond can save time and money in the future. All strategies mentioned in this publication work toward the common goal of limiting aquatic vegetation establishment. (4 pages)
