LAKE WACCAMAW, NC (WECT) - Earlier this week Lake Waccamaw Town Council approved a contract to move forward with plans to treat Hydrilla. The weed is growing in the lake and rangers at Lake Waccamaw State park say, it's important to kill it before it damages the ecosystem.
According to town manager Darren Currie, at the end of this month workers with the company Sepro will start the treatment.
Currie says, with the weather warming up Hyrdrilla can quickly start to grow.
It will cost thousands of dollars to treat the weed.
