Water Hyacinth Control

We are a small community with limited resources, and we have a large problem with Water Hyacinth in a 6-acre lake that is 80% covered. The lake is adjacent to the Tres Palacios River (less than 300’). Per the Federal Food Control Maps and Calculations in a flood event the river would flow over into the lake and then return to the river. If it did it would flush the hyacinth into the river. Currently when the lake is full the lake does overflow through discharge pipes which flow directly into the river. As I understand the situation the plants can be spread through the seeds and in this situation the seeds may be discharging into the river. We need any assistance understanding and tackling this issue.
