Officials Remind Residents Chemical Treatments Need Approval
Aquatic invasive species, milfoil, typically appears in Lake LBJ as the water warms, but with the drought going strong, has exacerbated the problem of water weeds in several spots.

Milfoil is not dangerous and provides great habitat for fish, but it is a nuisance for boaters and swimmers. The milfoil in Lake LBJ is often mixed with algae, which tends to cluster around the milfoil.

Lake LBJ is part of the Texas Highland Lakes which is a chain of freshwater reservoirs formed by several dams on the Colorado River. The dams provide flood control and are used to generate hydroelectric power; it is also the source of drinking water for most of Central Texas.

Being a source of drinking water and irrigation for many lakeside residents, The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department along with the Lower Colorado River Authority need to approve all treatment options as chemical treatments need to be used carefully.

Minnesota AIS Training for Lake Service Providers - In 2011, the Legislature passed a number of new laws related to prevention and management of aquatic invasive species (AIS) that apply to boaters, property owners, service providers, bait dealers and others involved with the transportation of water-related equipment. Service providers are now required to have a service provider permit before conducting work that includes placing or removing water related equipment from any state waters. Individuals who work for a service provider must also take training.
