What’s Up With the Wetland?

You may have noticed an increase of activity in our neighborhood’s large wetland area. Here’s what’s happening…

The Army Corps of Engineers has stepped in to ensure that Centex Homes completes the restoration of this wetland mitigation site. Specialists are doing their best to reduce the presence of invasive species throughout the wetland – this is why aggressive spraying is happening. Watering has increased in order to identify any invasives that survived the initial spraying. Once these begin to grow, then target spraying of these weeds and plants will occur. Next, a native wetland seed mix will be sprayed. Once these take hold the site will be predominately restored, the sprinklers will be removed, and our wetland will be put on a semi-annual maintenance schedule.
