A photograph take during the fall shows invasive weeds clogging a cove on Watts Bar Lake. Lakefront property owners disagree with sportsmen over whether something should be done about the weeds.

If there is one thing that all sides of the lake weed issue seem to agree on it’s that the problem — if there is a problem — needs to be studied carefully before any action is taken.

“We do know there is a problem and we’re trying to learn more,” County Commission Chairman Ron Berry said last Monday.

County Commissioner Carolyn Granger, a member of the county Environmental Review Board, told the commission that a workshop where more information will be presented on weeds is scheduled February 6.
