Waterbodies Eligible For Aquatic Plant Management Funding

More than 450 public waters in Florida are eligible for aquatic plant management funding through the FWC Invasive Plant Management Section by Florida Rule 68F-54.0035 – Waters Eligible and Eligibility Criteria for Aquatic Plant Management Funds.

Polk County has by far the most waterbodies listed with 85; some have far fewer. Some waterbodies are so large they span more than one county but are assigned to only one county on this list. For example, the St. Johns River flows through 11 counties, but is assigned to St. Johns County. Lake Okeechobee spans five counties but is listed in Okeechobee County, and so on. The list may be viewed by county or by waterbody.

Bathymetric maps are available for approximately 150 public lakes, listed alphabetically by lake name.
