The absence of clarity by TVA regarding funding for enhanced aquatic weed management is typical of a politically driven response, “Naw, there’s nothing in the budget.”
What this means is, nobody put forward a recommendation, and weeds don’t rate too high nohow.
Actually, TVA probably has no funds in its current budget to expand invasive weed management on Watts Bar Lake. In my view, this is no more than a smoke screen. It’s the old squeaky-wheel syndrome.
