Workplans

Aquatic plant management workplans are approved each June for the ensuing fiscal year that runs from July 1 – June 30. Since workplans provide an overview of the management objectives and an estimate of expenditures for a 12-month period, they must be flexible to adapt to changing environmental conditions, funding, and new technologies. Individual workplans are posted for waters in which FWC has allocated aquatic plant funding for that year. Workplans are permits that authorize types and amounts of plant control and control methods as well as reflect contractor costs that are allocated for reimbursement for the anticipated level of plant control. In addition to contractor costs approved on the workplan, FWC may purchase herbicides directly and supply to the contractor, especially for large-scale applications. Several contractors may be authorized to control different plants or provide different management services on an individual waterbody (i.e. airboat or aerial herbicide application, mechanical harvesting, etc.) FWC authorizes approximately 400 workplans for Florida waters each year, and FWC staff may authorize as many as 200 change orders during the year in response to changing conditions and stakeholder input.
