STOCKTON - The Stockton waterfront is finally relieved of smelly green algae now that the hot weather is gone.
However, it comes with a caveat: one green mess replaces another.
Delta waterways are now filled with a plant called water hyacinth. It makes boating practically impossible because the plants get sucked into the engines.
The state said it has been spraying water hyacinth in the delta since last march.
They are still trying to figure out what to do with the lingering problem that makes waterways tough to navigate.
