Boaters across Texas should take note of new regulations which may affect them.

Those who move boats with water still in bilges or live wells from certain north Texas lakes could be subject to fines.

This regulation is an attempt to combat the spread of Zebra Mussels, an invasive species.

The zebra mussels originated from Eurasia, and have spread into Lake Texoma and Sister Grove Creek.

The law affects boaters leaving the Red River basin in Wichita County downstream to the Arkansas border, according to Texas Parks and Wildlife.
