5563325-PPT.jpg
Impacts: 

invades both still and flowing water ecosystems including lakes, ponds, ditches, and rivers. It can form dense stands that crowd out native vegetation and reduce the area's value as fish habitat. It can also interfere with recreational activities such as fishing and swimming.

Source? likely to be reintroduced: 

E. densa has been continually distributed, mainly by trade, for use in aquaria. When aquaria are cleaned, plants can enter water systems and so spread to lakes and other water bodies. Noting its continued and widespread use and availability, it is highly likely that this species will be further introduced, or where present, will become naturalized in local water system
