Say goodbye to a good fishing area that has held some nice fish in the past. They are beginning to construct the dam that will extend from the pumping station to out past the do not enter buoys. Once completed, they will drain the entire area in order to install more intakes next to the existing ones. The added flow will go directly to the NE plant, treated and some of it will head to Katy....that is once the plant expansion is finished. They plan on building a pier wide enough for truck traffic from the pumping station out to a control house that will sit over the intakes. Took a ride down that way today and the noise and vibration should keep fish away from that area for some distance.

I wonder how much damage they will do to the lake with this project?
Guess they are preparing for those zebra muscles.....

Because there is nothing hard to attach to or because all the cormorants will eat them?

Makes you wonder how they survive in the Trinity River from Ft Worth to Liberty Texas too. And in the other lakes below.

Infested Lakes - Fifteen Texas lakes in five river basins can be classified as fully infested with zebra mussels, meaning the water body has an established, reproducing population: Austin, Belton, Bridgeport, Canyon, Dean Gilbert (a 45-acre Community Fishing Lake in Sherman), Eagle Mountain, Georgetown, Lady Bird, Lewisville, Livingston, Randell (local Denison access only), Ray Roberts, Stillhouse Hollow, Texoma, and Travis.
There are also lakes that are "positive" and there are lakes that are "suspect" and lakes that are "inconclusive".

State regulations require draining of water from boats and onboard receptacles when leaving or approaching public fresh waters.
From the TPW website: Zebra mussels start as microscopic larvae and grow to only 1.5 inches long. They can spread across Texas by hitching a ride on your boat, trailer or gear. Do your part to protect Texas lakes. Always clean, drain and dry your boat. It's the law -- fines up to $500. Yet the CWA/Corp of Engineers/City of Houston are allowed to introduce them into Lake Houston.
