Mathematical Model for the Dispersal of the Leaf Beetle for Biological Control of Invasive Saltcedar

Project Goals/Objectives: The goal of this project is to aid in implementing the Implementation Plan for Sulfate and Total Dissolved Solids (TMDLs) in the J.B. Thomas, E.V. Spence and O.H. Ivey Reservoirs by biological control of saltcedar in riparian areas along the Colorado River of Texas and its tributaries in an effort to reduce nonpoint source pollution loadings resulting from invasive brush species on agricultural lands.

Targeted Brush Control in the E.V. Spence Reservoir Watershed

Project Goals/Objectives: The goal of this project is to aid in implementing the Implementation Plan for Sulfate and Total Dissolved Solids TMDLs in the E.V. Spence Reservoir by chemically treating saltcedar in riparian areas along the Colorado River and its tributaries in an effort to reduce nonpoint source pollution loadings resulting from invasive brush species on agricultural lands.

Project Location: E.V. Spence Reservoir, Segment 1411; Colorado River below Lake J.B. Thomas, Segment 1412

Upper Colorado Saltcedar Control Project: Biological Control Component

Project Goals/Objectives: Aid in implementing the Implementation Plan for Sulfate and Total Dissolved Solids TMDLs in the E.V. Spence Reservoir by biologically treating saltcedar in the Colorado River Basin in an effort to reduce nonpoint source pollution loadings resulting from invasive brush species on agricultural lands. Demonstrate the effectiveness of the Leaf Beetle to control saltcedar in the E.V. Spence Reservoir Basin.

Project Location: E.V. Spence Reservoir, Segment 1411; Colorado River above Lake J.B. Thomas, Segment 1412.
