Hydrilla poses threat

Published 08-13-2008 - The Farmerville Gazette
Note: This article is about Lake D’Arbonne in Louisiana but it gives info on Hydrilla.

Hydrilla was discovered in the United States in 1960 at two Florida locations, a canal near Miami and in Crystal River. It spread throughout the state very rapidly. By the early 1970s it was established in major water bodies of all drainage basins in the state.

Hydrilla is now found in all Gulf Coast states, Atlantic Coast States as far north as Maryland and Delaware, and in the western states, California, Washington, and Arizona.
