officials hoping water hyacinth less of a problem in 2015


STOCKTON - Few people will forget the images of water hyacinth in Stockton and around the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta from 2014. Aerial views over downtown Stockton could have convinced newcomers there was no water under the huge swath of green growth.
