Heard that homeowners on Lake Athens got a note this week saying that workers would be spraying grass.

Noticed the last time I was there that the grass had been pushed back but figured it was just due to "winter"....but now I'm wondering if they had sprayed some already

It is up to the home owners to kill the grass and only in front of their houses (I don't think it can go past their dock much) I hope it doesn't get out of hand & ruin the lake.

Many million dollar homes.
Grass bad on jet skis.

It seems like most of the rich people who build huge homes on lakes really don't like living on lakes. They like living on big, dammed up swimming pools. All those yucky plants and varmints that get into the pool need to be cleaned out.

Money talks though. And those homeowners who have the mansions have the money.

this is not going to be a popular opinion but if you had a million dollar lake house I bet you would like a way to get to the water without overheating your motor .

When they "treated" Lake Tyler they killed all the grass in the middle of the lake, around Stake Island. I wasn't aware there were any boat docks or children swimming around it.

dont buy a house on a lake that has a lot of vegetation? I.e. Clear water promotes vegetation growth for the most part

Yep, Cypress Springs is a perfect example. The water used to be beautiful and clear. I bet now a lot of the homeowners wonder what happened and why it is so much dirtier.
