Are crepe myrtle roots invasive

Zone Richmond 77406 | Anonymous added on March 27, 2016 | Answered

Are crepe myrtle roots invasive to close plumbing lines? I am required by the HOA to replace a yard tree with a tree that is less intrusive than the current tree. However, the sewer and main water line are very close to the small area that is available in the front yard. Do you have any suggestions on a tree option? How invasive is a crepe myrtle's tree roots?
