Five organizations working to protect Caddo Lake will hold a community meeting Wednesday in Karnack, Texas, covering a full slate of issues that impact the lake that spans the Texas-Louisiana border.

Foremost, will be an update on the October oil spill that occurred just upstream in Bayou Tete. Representatives from Sunoco Logistics and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality will address attendees.

Close to 50 paddlefish are once again swimming around in Caddo Lake. Scientists and researchers from a half dozen federal and private agencies are collaborating on an effort to evaluate the health of the Caddo Lake watershed, and the dinosaur-era paddlefish will be a leading indicator.
