How do I get rid of water hyacinth?
You do not say if the water hyacinth is located in a small pond or if you are on a lake but the answer is the same - you cannot use regular weed killer as it will contaminate the water and usually does not work anyway.
Here is one company that sells a product but they have a lot of information on their site as well.
How do I kill hyacinth lilies? They have taken over our 5 acre pond! We've tried everything! Please help.

I would say put list them for free on Craigslist to see if anyone would like to come take some off your hands. I live in northern Wiscsonsin and would love to have some for my ponds. Good luck!
According to Lake Restoration Incorporated you need to be using a product called Glyphosate 5.4. This is an Herbicide that you put directly on the plants. They absolutely describe it as an invasive species that has even cause problems with public waterways and systems. There is a lot of valuable knowledge about the product above and what you need to do to kill and properly dispose of any remnants of the plant should you have them. I will post a link below.
