This plant has taken over a pond on a farm owned by my job. We would like to identify the plant, and learn how to get it under control without the use of any chemicals. Thank you in advance for your help!

According to sources water-shield is beneficial for waterfowl & fish. Check out the included below for more information. Best wishes!
