Wildlife officials are reminding boaters headed to some Texas lakes for the Memorial Day weekend to drain, clean and dry their watercraft to help prevent the spread of zebra mussels.
Despite the “Fiscal Cliff” impasse in Washington, Congress did get one item through in time to help more than a million-and-a-half North Texans.
Water rates could be going up for residents in many North Texas cities and the hike is the result of Zebra Mussels.
There’s a chance your water bill may be going up and you can blame it, in part, on Zebra Mussels. Zebra Mussels are tiny aquatic life forms that stick to smooth surfaces, and can gum up boat engines and motors at municipal water pumping stations.
With the threat of a growing zebra mussel infestation in North Texas, local researchers are working overtime to find ways to combat the invasive species.
Texas wildlife officials want to extend emergency rules designed to prevent a destructive mussel from continuing an invasive march through the state’s waterways.
Recent test on 14 North Texas reservoirs shows Zebra Mussels appear to be contained to one lake, but state authorities still want boaters to take precautions to prevent their spread.
No landscape watering. No permits for new swimming pools. That could be the reality for thousands of North Texans in 2012.
There is no sign of the Texas drought ending. And North Texas water officials plan to consider tightening local water restrictions even further.
If you’re planning on swimming or boating at an area lake this Labor Day weekend there are closures and health warnings you need to know about.
