A plant described as the 'world's worst water weed' has been found in the Ballarat region and the community is being encouraged to do something about it.

Water Hyacinth is a highly invasive weed that chokes lakes, rivers and waterways.

Agriculture Victoria is encouraging Ballarat locals to report the illegal weed to prevent it from taking hold around the state.
