Chemicals slated to kill lake hydrilla
Officials plan to use chemicals to exterminate hydrilla in Smith Mountain Lake, where the aggressive underwater weed has taken hold.
The Tri-County Lake Administrative Commission will spend $72,000 to get rid of the hydrilla that has popped up on the Franklin County side of the lake near Crazy Horse Marina. A herbicide will be put in the lake next Thursday, and nearby residents are advised against using lake water on lawns and gardens during the four- to six-week process.
Swimming and fishing will still be allowed during the extermination.
Hydrilla can grow up to 25 feet, and is found in all of the Southern states as well as most Mid-Atlantic and some Western states. If left unchecked, the plant can snare boat propellers and affect fishing and swimming.
