Eurasian Watermilfoil Program
Beginning in 2006 the Idaho Legislature and the Governor approved $4 million to eradicate a very aggressive noxious weed, Eurasian Watermilfoil. In 2007 and 2008, the Governor and the Idaho Legislature approved an additional $4 million to continue the effort to control Eurasian Watermilfoil.
As directed by H.B. 869 (2006), ISDA is expending the appropriated funds to support on-the-ground Eurasian Watermilfoil eradication projects through a statewide Eurasian Watermilfoil Program.
Applications for funds associated with this program shall be submitted only to ISDA. As the designated lead agency administering the Eurasian Watermilfoil Program, ISDA staff has conferred with both state and federal agencies to coordinate and facilitate processing, prioritization, and approval of these applications.
Available funds will be distributed to as many high-priority projects throughout the state as possible in an equitable and meaningful allocation.
For questions about this program please call 208-332-8528
