City, Lake Tyler Homeowners Meet To Discuss Hydrilla Plan

Homeowners on Lake Tyler East and the City of Tyler's water utilities director met Wednesday to discuss the future of hydrilla abatement.

The city's Greg Morgan tells us they are willing to pay between $250,000 to $300,000 to stock the lake with a sterile carp that eats the hydrilla, if homeowners around the lake will pay for chemical treatment of a bit more than 300 acres around the lake.

Morgan says that will cost homeowners about $250,000. 

A homeowners association president we spoke with says members will meet to discuss the plan, and he says the cost they were quoted today was actually close to $1 million for chemical treatment. The city says that would be the cost to treat the entire lake, if the city's carp aren't introduced.
