Aquatic Noxious Weed Control General Permit

This permit controls freshwater and marine noxious weeds in Washington. It covers the indirect discharge of herbicides, adjuvants, and marker dyes into estuaries, marine areas, wetlands, along lake shorelines, rivers, streams, and other wet areas.

An indirect discharge occurs when there may be incidental overspray — spray that goes beyond the intended area — or dripping of a chemical from the treated plants into waters of the state.
