Water Is Life, In Texas Our Lakes Provide That Water!
The presence of lakes in Texas is no accident, the importance of lakes in Texas is paramount, Texas lake problems need everyone's attention. It might surprise you, but, the state of Texas has more acres covered by water than Minnesota, the "Land of Lakes!" This fact is made even more astounding when you consider that all of our lakes in Texas are man made, with the exception of Caddo Lake which is partially in Texas, and partially in Louisiana.
The importance of Texas lakes.
We depend on our lakes for water in our homes, farms, ranches, and industry, as well as recreation. They are our main water source. Without them, life as we know it today in the Lone Star State would not exist. The importance of lakes in the lives of Texans, can not be over stressed! The fact that we have so many, is a testimony to good long term planning, and shear willpower!
Problems with Texas Lakes.
Many of our lakes, both public, and private, are suffering from vegetation problems, particularly, exotic invasive aquatic plants. The pace of this invasion is now occurring at a geometric rate. This site will deal with solutions to this problem and others, and offer advice for the private lake owner on this and other Texas lake related topics.

Some of the topics we cover on this site:
Almost every farmstead had a pond or two. Most well planned ranches had more, to meet the needs of cattle in a multi pasture grazing system. Many of these "stock tanks" have been subdivided into semi rural plots, and often serve as weed collectors!
With a little work, they can be turned from problem areas into recreational fishing havens!
One of our most frequently asked questions. The best insect control is prevention. Prevention usually involves some alteration in the environment, this usually involves the control of vegetation.
Won't dyes color the water and keep the weeds from growing up?
Yes, but they do not provide the food for the bugs that provide food for the fish, and oxygen for the water that fertilization will cause...
