Herbicide halts Rockwood water works

Rockwood Water, Sewer and Natural Gas temporarily suspended pumping water at its raw water intake after concerns about herbicide sprayed in the area to address aquatic weeds overwhelming the waterways.

In a statement from Utility General Manager Kim Ramsey, she indicated TVA contractors recently sprayed herbicide in the area of the Rockwood utility’s raw water intake facility.

“We knew that there was spraying to be completed in the area with a herbicide called Nautique at some point,” she said.
