Water weed chokes marina

Bill Pease stood on a small wooden bridge overlooking Old River about a mile away from the entrance to his boating company, Rivers End Marina & Storage. He watched as a thick carpet of green vegetation ebbed beneath him toward the entrance to his docks. About a quarter of a mile from his boat slots, the mass of water hyacinth stretches several hundred yards from the marina into Old River. The plant has clogged the river from bank to bank — a span of about 150 feet.
