Additional Support for Caddo coming from Harrison County Commissioners

In yesterday's Harrison County Commissioner's Court meeting, the court approved an additional $2,000 to "support the Cypress Valley Navigation District's eradication and research efforts regarding the critical invasion of giant salvinia on Caddo Lake" according to an article by Robin Richardson in today's Marshall News Messenger.

Additionally, the Labor Day weekend fundraiser hosted by the Greater Caddo Lake Association netted more than $10,000 that will go toward helping control giant salvinia on the lake.

Harrison County Judge Hugh Taylor said he hopes that these local contributions of additional funding will encourage other entities to help with the control efforts as well.

One thing is for certain; every little bit of additional funding that goes to Caddo Lake will certainly help.
