CommentsIt was also growing in a pond in the Naperville Golf Course and in retention ponds upstream from the golf course. This is probably the source to the origin of the plant infestation in our preserve. Staff has contacted the golf course and Naperville PD, about the problem. They have agreed to treat these populations, and were supplied with herbicide made available through the Early Invaders grant money. Property Owners ID: 3; EDDMapS report
