Newswise: An Urbanized Florida Means More Stormwater Ponds, Invasive Plants

An Urbanized Florida Means More Stormwater Ponds, Invasive Plants

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

In their first attempt to quantify stormwater ponds, researchers with the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences found about 76,000 such ponds statewide. Many master-planned communities, especially in Florida, rely on stormwater ponds for flood control and water treatment. But the ponds also can be homes to many invasive plant species, which are costly to control.
