"Caddo Lakes done got so bad, figured wed come out here and try it this weekend, but it looks likes starting to take this over," he said.
Shreveport city leaders are taking steps to make sure Cross Lake doesnt get hit as hard as Lake Bistineau. Floating barricades have already been set out to try and contain the threat.
"It concerns the quality of water number one. It concerns the fish, the acquatic life that belongs here," Cross Lake resident John Taylor said.
Cross Lake homeowners are just as concerned as boaters. Not only does salvinia hurt their recreation...it hurts their water supply.
"If this lake is out of commission, then I think the city of Shreveport is going to lose alot," Pat Kane said.
The evasive plant is gaining attention at the top. In a statement from the city of Shreveport, Mayor Cedric Glover says: "It is most important that we keep the public and Cross Lake residents informed and involved in a progressive plan of attack to stop or curb its rapid and now threatening growth."
Bobby Johnson says hes all for keeping the lake viable and attractive for years to come.
"Its getting to where they have to do something or everybodys gonna start going somewhere else," he said.
Tuesday, Shreveport city leaders will team up with the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for a public meeting. The goal is to address resident concerns and inform the public of any future plans of salvnia attack. The meeting starts 6:30 p.m. at the American Legion Hall on South Lakeshore Drive.
