Ok, bad, bad idea.
Once upon a time (about 25 years ago) I had a direct source it. Either through chemical run off (from a road), an infestation of another plant (we called it duck weed), or perhaps devine intervention, the "Hydrilla" (as I knew it at the time) died.
I am under the impression that the original (indirect) source remains (I was told it did, but have not actually looked myself for quite a few years). When I get the chance I will try to get a more possitive identification from it.
I forgot about the ban since I do not fish or boat as much as I used to. Lake Austin (which is about 4 miles from my house) has to be lowered annually to control it.
Please forgive me for inadvertantly asking about something potentionally illegal.
Have tried doing some research into this weed issue - comming to realize it is a lot bigger issue than I originally realized. Like the Texas fine is $200-$2000 per plant. A 500 gallon tub could = a million dollar fine in theory.
