TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson Water is closing its Sweetwater Wetlands facility Saturday to clean up invasive water lettuce.

Crews will clean invasive water lettuce at the facility, 2511 W. Sweetwater Drive at 6 a.m. that day.

According to Tucson Water, the plants -- which are not native to the area -- siphon water of oxygen and nutrients.
