Japanese Knotweed has been most recently recorded on this water body in 2010. This plant not only shades out native plants, but also causes serious damage to buildings.


 Japanese Knotweed can be removed by spraying or injecting its roots with pesticides, this takes time to kill the plant, but it is effective. Just digging up this plant is, unfortunately, not enough.
