to get some attention from the state concerning the hydrilla infesta jiohofthelake The lake js about 400 acres and we estimate that theres now about 100 to 150 acres of said Mike White president of the associa tion We want enough funds from the state to treat it chemically or at make the State aware of the problem Fishermen like it because it provides cover for fish but eventually you cant get a hook in the Denis also a Lake Dunlap area resident said many of his bors are concerned about declining property values if the problem is resolved TJbe lake will become even more useless an eye sore and an unhealthy polluted said Parker Even now in winter while top growth is down many of our dock areas are plugged with decaying plants old beer cans bottles shoes and trash in gen eral By October last year we had no access to the lake and some areas were According to White a lakemanage per Ration to chemically treat ed from those endangered White cited the Use of the grass carp in other states with similar situations An Arkansas Game and Fish Com mission report done in 1072 that the possible effects on the environment were at worst far better than the pos sible effects of some chemicals now used instead The report also said that the white amur or grass carp is a very insufficient spawner and that the eggs and fryjequire strong currents I to 5 feet per second and certain tempera tures to survive The report also cited their desirability as a food fish which would assure harvest However the report did acknowledge its introduction has been controversial Another report from the University of Honda said that the grass carp is the most effective biological control but it is illegal in most states due to the potential environmental damage that could result if escaped fish establish a breeding population Sterile grass carp are available and now legal in many states eliminating the breeding prob lem However the report said an ade quate method of recapturing the fish must be developed since stocking rates for partial control have not been sci entifically established The report also said the sterile carp are not used in large roultipwpose lakes where aquat ic vegetation is desirable for sport fish and waterfowl habitat Use of the carp and at least two applications would be required White fivers an alternative to cnenv ical stocking of grass carp However the use of grass carp to protect Lake Dunlap may be prohibit ed because of the endangered species which ironically have been used recently to protect the Comal Springs According to Debbie Magin of the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority grass carp have been used in some parts of the state with great success However the fish can only be stocked by state permit and the permit is extremely hard to obtain because the fish are not selective and can remove many acres offish cover They are not stocked in a flowing system that is connected in any way to an endangered species habitat such as the Coroal Springs and the San Marcos said Magiru It sounds far fetched but Texas Parks and Wildlifes experience with that species will not allow stocking Lake Dunlap with grass carp Lake Dunlap cannot be separat r alteSiativFirharvesting which is very labor irjtensive and can actuallypuse more rapid spreading of the vegetation if ther hydrilla is allowed to float away because it will root elsewhere Property owners on the lake have been advised to remove the cuttings from the water and allow them to dry They are primarily water and will leave very little mass Because the hydrilla is so fast growing harvest ing would need to be done about every two weeks Artificial substrates have been used but are considered cost prohibitive They consist of a mat placed on the sediment which blocks out light pre venting the plants from rooting Were still looking into ity type said Magin A copper compound seems to be the best alternative We plan to let the cold water take care of some of the problem and then when the hydrilla starts to grow in the spring well apply the According to Magin GBRA is com mitted to helping the Lake Dunlap T VE s4 submitted photos Lake Dunlap property owners are disturbed the overwhelming growth of hydrilla which has takerujver docks top photo and extends Into the middle of the lake bottom property owners but she admits their funding will be limited because of other lakes in their system whiph will also need this type of help Magin also said Texas Parks and Wildlife has no money allocated for hydrilla eradication but they have offered tbejr labor and equipment for me applies tion Magin said they dont normally use the copper compound herbicide being considered because it is COIH sive to their equipment boweVef they recognize the need in this the property owners and GBRA would have to fund the purchase of the herbicide at this time unless some other source of funding can be found Four local students nominated by Lamar Smith to service academies By ROSE MARIE EASH
