Our current Aquatic Plant Management programs only cover areas up to a pier head. They do not go to your shore. Following are measures that a riparian owner can take to improve their own areas. None of which require a permit:
- You are allowed to manually remove all free-floating, unattached vegetation along your shore and around your pier, as far out into the water as you like.
- You can manually pull out and remove all Invasive Species as far out from your shore as you can wade.
- For all other vegetation, you can manually clear a 30ft wide path. This path can go as far into the water as you can wade.
The WWMD has rakes available for loan to help you with this.
