LCRA hosts aquatic weed open houses

By Glynis Crawford Smith
Water hyacinths have lovely blossoms, but pose a threat to power plants. Along with Eurasian watermilfoil, they will be discussed by the Lower Colorado River Authority at two local open houses Feb. 24 and March 1.

In response to Lake LBJ property owners complaints about nuisance aquatic plants, the Lower Colorado River Authority has streamlined the permit process for treatment and set two open houses—one in Granite Shoals Feb. 24 and another in Horseshoe Bay on March 1--to inform lakefront residents.

Each event will be held 3-6 p.m., with presentations at 3, 4 and 5 p.m. The open house in Granite Shoals will be held at the Granite Shoals Fire Department, 8410 West Ranch to Market Road 1431. In Horseshoe Bay it will be held at Quail Point Community Center, 107 Twilight Lane. Control measures for Eurasian watermilfoil and water hyacinths will be included.

For more information on the meetings see the Friday, Feb. 19, edition of The Highlander.
