The Friends of Lake McQueeney (FOLM) was born in response to a crisis. The crisis was an infestation of a non-native weed called HYDRILLA. Property owners, businesses, and concerned friends joined together in the mid 1990's to attack an enemy that was literally choking the life out of the lake, turning it into a swamp where swimming, boating, skiing, and fishing became impossible in most areas of the lake.
By joining together, FOLM was able to raise the money and generate the political will to attack the problem. FOLM worked with authorities to allow a treatment plan of herbicides and sterile grass carp that not only controlled Hydrilla, but eliminated it. Our lake was saved from disaster.
Since that time, many new challenges have presented themselves. Having a standing organization with an adequate treasury has allowed us to address problems immediately and to have the interests of Lake McQueeney represented whenever new issues arise.
Current issues facing FOLM are water quality, regional water flow and supply, exotic weed control, water hazard removal, boating and water safety, and flood issues.
