Abstract: Sago pondweed (Stukenia pectinata) is a submerged, perennial aquatic species that is native to Colorado. When present in standing water, sago pondweed is not usually problematic; however, irrigation canals across Colorado provide optimal growing conditions for sago pondweed. When sago pondweed is present the efficiency of water delivery can be severely impacted. Sago pondweed reaches maximum growth in July and August when water demand is highest.
