So is there anyone at the state level that will discuss spraying?

All that ever happens is people complain, everyone is mad and nothing changes.

I would take the salvinia over the results after the spraying any day. Besides the only thing that has really worked against the salvinia is real cold weather. Rayburn and Toledo are large deep lakes that wont become completely covered with the stuff if it was left alone. Shame after watching what they did to Toledo and now they are trying to ruin one of the best lakes in Texas. Who is the one person that gets to make the decision to spray?

There's no point in discussing it. Same cycle every time. Someone is outraged, several folks post their opinion, some have logical fact-based points for and against, maybe someone sends an email to the state biologist and they'll get a generic "we're fighting invasive species and this is the most practical method" response. Thread goes quiet within two weeks.

Someone is getting their pockets lined with cash. It's all about contracts and money. They out there spraying where there is nothing to spray. If they don't spray they don't get paid. Crying shame and not gonna change.

Deep cold snap next week should help with the control.
Maybe they will take this under consideration and stop spraying, or spray much less? smile

Look, I argue with my wife. Doesn't do any good or change any minds.

But I somehow feel better anyhow. So take your common sense somewhere else !

See that’s the problem. I doubt it’s taken into consideration. If the cold snap kills every last piece of it, the sprayers already have contracts to spray so they will spray. And everyone will wonder where the hydrilla went.

So nobody is gonna want to hear this . . . (and be assured that I did not vote this way)

The previous administration did many great, common sense things.
One of the things was to roll back a bunch of dumb stuff in the Clean Water Act.
However, when you do that, you sometimes cut your own legs out for the rare occasions when you need them.

The current administration hammer is more . . . lets just say open to big government and as such will likely re-instate those
provisions that allow citizens and environmental groups to take legal actions.

There are several environmental organizations who will benefit from this. (WaterKeeper Alliance, Warriors for Clean Water, etc. for example)

Texas anglers (Bass clubs, Tournament organizers, Weekend anglers, Kayak clubs, etc.) need to form a non-profit organization and seek out partnerships with these environmental groups. (believe it or not)
They'll need a war chest to fund the legal actions that will be needed.

. . . or we can just ignore it and be good little sheep.
