It had been "farmed to death," she said, and two playa lakes were in poor condition. Bill Johnson, a U.S. Fish &amp; Wildlife Service biologist, developed a restoration plan that involved silt removal, playa repair, and a native grass and forbs plant buffer around the playas' margins. This story is part two of a four-part series on playa health and originally aired on HPPR on February 19, 2013. The story was repeated April 2, 2013 as part of the Landowner Stories series.</p><p> Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:53:21 +0000 Dale Bolton 12486 at Playa Renovation: Jan Minton Ranch Floyd, TX
