Brooks Delighted TVA to Provide Relief for Guntersville Aquatic Weed Control

WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 24, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, U.S. Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) commended the Tennessee Valley Authority’s announcement that it will work with a newly created Alabama state board, legislators and local officials to find a long-term funding solution to manage invasive aquatic weeds in residential and commercial areas of Guntersville Reservoir. According to TVA’s release, “If the stakeholder group of homeowners, anglers, environmentalists and state and local agencies agrees to reinstate a Guntersville weed management plan, TVA will provide short-term funding to treat weeds in residential and commercial areas for six years beginning this summer.”

Congressman Brooks said, “One of my first actions as a United States Congressman was to ask the TVA leadership to resume their abandoned weed effort. I thank TVA President and CEO Bill Johnson and the Tennessee Valley’s own TVA Board of Directors Chairman Joe Ritch, for being responsive to weed control requests by my office, mayors, commissioners and elected officials throughout the Tennessee Valley. Today’s weed control decision means the Tennessee Valley’s rivers and lakes will continue to be a great tourism and recreational resource for years to come.”
