The North Texas Municipal Water District will team up with other water agencies and the North Central Texas Council of Governments to host three meetings in November to discuss feral hog management. 

Wild hogs are among the most destructive invasive species in the United States and their population is growing, especially in Texas. 

According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, feral hogs are omnivorous, meaning they eat both plant and animal matter. Much of their food includes grasses, roots, acorns and agriculture crops. 

The destruction of habitat and agricultural commodities impacts both rural and urban areas and also affects water quality in nearby lakes, rivers, and streams. 

The three regional feral hog conferences will focus on coordinated efforts to control hog populations.
