CITY OF MIDDLETON: Middleton Southern Cattail Control


The City of Middleton will continue working with consultants and volunteers to control the multiple stands of Typha domingensis located in the Middleton wetlands. This species has the potential to be invasive, and to hybridize with other cattail species and become even more invasive. On this assumption, immediate and effective control should be undertaken. All locations of this species are being documented. In addition, if Phragmites or purple loosestrife are found in the project area, those plants will also be treated. A final report documenting the monitoring, mapping, control efforts, as well as evaluation of the need for future efforts, will be shared with local wetland plant experts and local friends groups.
