In summer months, the prevalence of the non-native Eurasian Milfoil water plant can become prolific in shallower areas of Lake LBJ. There are also a variety of other native and non-native water plants that grow in the lake.
For more information on identifying and managing plants in Lake LBJ, please visit the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) webpage on this topic. No chemicals should be put in the lake without getting approval of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and LCRA. Any application of herbicides in the lake must be performed by a pest control firm certified in aquatic application to ensure protection of our water supply. Please remember your drinking water comes directly from Lake LBJ.
